Update: Nordlingen Sanatorium Memorial Hospital.(Nordlingen Tuberculosis Sanatorium)

Hey there!!,back here to preview another update on our countries first build healthcare hospital.The Nordlingen Island Memorial Hospital was the first and the oldest hospital build in United Islands Of Territories.Build during the Protestant invasion around 1700,it serves as a medical clinic and a town hospital on the hills of Nordlingen Town.In the early 20th century,Medelpad and Nordlingen Town was severly striken with an outbreak of tuberculosis due to the refugees fleeing from their country and trespasses into UIT to avoid the disease which is spreading in Northern Germany.At that period,most refugees are infected with TB when they were intruding Medelpad Town causing a major tuberculosis outbreaks in UIT.The hospital was the most visited place to cure and prevent the TB to spread further.During that time,the first hospital block was just build to hold 10 patients and a medicine storeroom to provide equipment,the outbreaks of the tuberculosis caused a major overcrowding to the hospital.At least 200 people was admitted in the first hospital block and the spread becomes even more worse due to lack of hygiene and lack of medical equipments.

Plans were introduced to expand the hospital by building another block that will house 510 patients to avoid the disease from spreading further,over crowding in the first block which patient capacity was inefficient and the poor condition of the building.The new block started construction in 1895 and it was completed around 1903.Serious overcrowding was still affecting the hospital which more expansions is needed to treat more patients.The hospital management ran out of funds and decided to use a cheap way to treat outpatients that is minor on a field.In 1920,streptomycin was introduced to prevent or cure tuberculosis which was proven effective,the amount of tuberculosis patients dropped by 51% and the hospital was back into a normal status.During the TB outbreak,approximately 2,793 people died and was buried around the hospitals lot/area.

Today,the hospital serves as the main hospital for Medelpad Island.Many doctors,nurses and staffs claimed that they have seen many supernatural,ghostly and paranormal activities during their working hours,but many citizens claim that it is among the most beautiful/scenic hospital ever build in the United Islands Of Territories.
