Geocache Description:

Vanhan Vaasan sairaala toimii entisen Vaasan lääninsairaalan alueella ja tiloissa. Tämä oli Turun lääninsairaalan jälkeen maamme toiseksi vanhin lääninsairaala, jonka syntysanat lausuttiin Ruotsin kuninkaan kiertokirjeessä vuonna 1765.

Venäjän keisarivallan aikana sairaalaa laajennettiin. Sairaalan nykyinen päärakennus valmistui 1844. Vaasan palossa vuonna 1852 sairaala säilyi ja sen yhteyteen rakennettiin mielisairaanhoidosta annetun keisarillisen asetuksen mukaan vuonna 1889 sielullisesti sairaiden vastaanottolaitos, nykyinen A-rakennus.

Arkkitehti C. L. Engelin piirtämä lääninsairaalan päärakennus muutettiin vuonna 1939 Ragnar Wessmanin piirustusten mukaan ns. kriminaalipotilaiden ja vaikeahoitoisiksi katsottujen mielisairaiden hoito- ja tutkimuspaikaksi.

Vanha Vaasa hospital operates on the old premises of the former provincial hospital. It was the second oldest provincial hospital after the one in Turku. The hospital was founded on grounds of a circular of 1765 from the Swedish king.

During the reign of the Russian Czar, the hospital expanded. The present main building of the hospital was finished in 1844. The hospital was spared of the Great Fire of Vaasa in 1852 and an institution for taking care of mentally ill people was opened 1889, based on a decree issued by the Czar.

The main building by C. L. Engel was converted according to the plans of Ragnar Wessman in 1939 into an institution for the research and treatment of patients with difficult propensities and so-called forensic psychiatric patients.
