Plymouth County Hospital | Hanson Tuberculosis Hospital Cranberry Specialty Hospital Information:
The Plymouth County Hospital aka Hanson Tuberculosis Hospital was built in 1923 to function as a sanitarium to treat TB victims from Boston and Plymouth County. Hanson Tuberculosis Hospital became Plymouth County Hospital when new antibiotics lessened the need for sanitariums. The name of the facility again changed in 1982 to Cranberry Specialty Hospital when its main focus was changed to providing long-term care to patients stricken with chronic illnesses.
In 1991, the 60 patients at Cranberry Specialty Hospital were transferred to Middleborough and the old hospital building was abandoned. In 1999, the 56-acre property was sold to the city of Hanson. In 2001, Baran Partners purchased 23 acres and made plans to build townhouses and an assisted living facility, but these plans fell through.
Unfortunately, the Plymouth County Hospital has been host to vandalism and arson. The buildings are slated for demolition due to fire and water damage.
