Abandoned Asylum

View Road Hospital

"1975 - The first batch of 35 patients set foot in View Road Hospital, a psychiatric facility with 250 beds for the rehabilitation of patients with chronic schizophrenia. Ward 21 of WH was converted into a new psychiatric Outpatient Department while Ward 23 became a medical ward."
- Taken from IMH Online website.

Most everybody knows about Woodbridge Hospital, but little is known about View Road Hospital. Situated at the end of View Road, off Admiralty Road West, it's the kind of place that you'd easily miss, even IF you drive past that area every day. Even in today's highly urbanised and developed Singapore, the hospital site is still very secluded, so you can imagine how far-off from everywhere it must've been some 30 years ago. The only other mental institution more isolated could've been the one that was situated on St. John's Island.
