Marlboro State Psychiatric Hospital Final Visit

Marlboro State Psychiatric Hospital  Soon to be demolished! 

Marlboro Psychiatric Hospitalwas a hospital operated by the State of New Jersey.  It first opened in early 1931 on a campus of over 450 acres.   Although the hospital was expected to hold a capacity of up to 2000 residents the average in attendance barely reached 780 adults per day with a staff of 1,157 employees and a total budget of $55.5 million in 1995.

The hospital was composed of 17 cottage-style dormitories holding 55 patients each. In addition to the central building, there were more than 20 buildings used for a cafeteria, security station, firehouse and morgue. 

Marlboro Psychiatric Hospital had a history of problems ranging from food poisoning to missing patients. There were reports of deaths due to vitamin deficiencies, blood clots from retraints to choking to death on a peanut butter sandwich.]

 The hospital closed in 1998 following a 1993 undercover investigation that uncovered patient abuse, wasteful spending and other illegal practices at the hospital.

In November 2011, NJ State officials announced that the Marlboro Psychiatric Hospital will be demolished to prepare for an open space community park for Monmouth County residents. The project is slated for completion in 2013.

The investigation was by Senator Cody who gave the name of a known sex offender as his ID and got hired by MPH for the infamous Cottage 16 where patients were kept locked in the basement during the day.

Many of the staff psychiatrists weren’t psychiatrists at all because they had their specialty in other areas. One was a pediatrician. Staff drank on the job, major drug dealing even among management personnel, as I heard, and mysterious “suicides” were among the scandals.

The CEO and other were fired. The cornfield was actually run by prisoners who also cared for the cattle at the hospital farm.

You should have done a better job of researching this video before you made it.

That’s “impending”, not “impeding”. :)

Nice video. Great that you recorded a visual record of it before it’s impeding demolishment. Spooky place. In 1976, I lived next to MSH in a house on Highway 79 in Wickatunk. The only thing separating us from the place was a big cornfield.

Is there any way to take pictures of the place legally?
