Lakeville State Hospital





Name: Lakeville State Hospital

Location: Lakeville, MA

Current Status: Abandoned

Background:  The sanatorium opened its doors in 1910 for the treatment of those with turberculosis. In the 1950s, following a decline in the number of tuberculosis cases, the sanatorium began treating patients with other crippling conditions. In 1963, the Lakeville State Sanatorium was renamed the Lakeville Hospital. Pursuant to recommendation by the Special Commission for the study of the Consolidation of State Facilities, the hospital was closed in 1993.
