Charity Hospital

Charity Hospital
In several places, Mrs. Reilly talks about sending Ignatius to Charity Hospital’s psych ward. I never made it over to Charity to get photos, but here are a couple I pulled off the internet…

The first photo shows the hospital’s main entrance.
The second photo shows the Charity complex, circa 1960.
The hospital was very badly damaged during Hurricane Katrina, mainly by flooding. The damage was so extensive that there are no plans to renovate. The hospital will be demolished and a brand new facility will be built to replace it.
