Medical facilities in decay


Share post:

In response to numerous calls and complaints, The WEEKEND NATION continues its look at abandoned Government buildings that are eyesores and health hazards. This week: Roseville and the St Joseph Hospital in St Peter.

 THE FORMER ROSEVILLE halfway house is now being described as nothing but an example of Government wastage.

Located in Colleton, the building was once used for the rehabilitation of psychiatric patients. Now, it is rusting, overgrown with bush and is the adopted home of people using the still running electricity and water.

A man familiar with the situation told the WEEKEND NATION of some of the issues concerning Roseville. Requesting anonymity, he said it was hard to stomach such “monumental” wastage of taxpayers’ money. (CA)
