The Best Hospital Ever

A few weeks ago, I was scouting a long defunct hospital when I noticed a whiteboard that still had doctors’ names written on it.


It’s pretty common to find interesting bits and pieces like this in old hospitals, left over from when they were in operation.

Then I looked at it a little closer – this must have been some hospital:


Ha, definitely left over from a previous film shoot – I’d love to know which so I can keep an eye out for it!

  1. they misspelled ‘hannibal lecter’.

  2. You have the greatest job!! Love your site.

  3. No Dr.Frankenstein?

  4. Dr. Jan Itor must have been sick that day!

  5. I’m guessing it’s from a 2011 short film called “Chin Up” for which (according to IMDb) Tara Pavoni was the Production Designer, and Marcus Slabine was the key art assistant. The synopsis suggests that it may have been filmed in a hospital: “A woman preparing for jaw surgery is offered an additional cosmetic procedure and must decide whether or not to alter her appearance.”

  6. Doogie Howser MD?

  7. Before reading the rest of your comments, I had to do a double take on that list…hilarious!

    All 4 Ghostbusters (Peter Venkman, Egon Spengler, Ray Stantz, Winston Zeddmore) Doogie Howser, Hannibal Lector and RATCHET from Transformers! Someone was definitely a fan of the 80s!

    Anynoe know the bottom two names?

  8. Actually I think Ratchet would be the nurse from One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest. It does say Nurse/Doctors at the top of the whiteboard…

    • Right but wrong…she was Nurse Ratched, so it’s probably named after Ratchet the transformer who in turn was named after her

  9. Who is watching room 204??

  10. I think that what you published was very logical.

    But, think on this, suppose you added a little content?
    I am not saying your content isn’t good., however what if you added a title that grabbed a person’s attention?

    I mean The Best Hospital Ever | Scouting NY is kinda boring.
    You ought to look at Yahoo’s home page and see how they write post titles to grab people to click.
    You might try adding a video or a related picture or two to grab readers interested about everything’ve got to say.
    Just my opinion, it could bring your blog a little livelier.

  11. Everything is very open with a clear clarification of
    the issues. It was really informative. Your website is extremely helpful.
    Thank you for sharing!
