Eastern Washington State Hospital at Medical Lake (Historic Asylums)

Eastern Washington State Hospital

Medical Lake, Washington

The original Kirkbride building at Medical Lake is long gone, but the building that replaced it has a superficial approximation of a Kirkbride floor plan, with male and female wings extending from a larger center wing. Originally just a mental hospital, the complex now houses mental health patients, chimpanzees, juvenile criminal offenders, and bats, as the mental hospital has downsized and different uses have been found for some of the buildings and grounds.
