Hospitals are different. You only spend a short time in them. But here you stay month after month, even years. And you have no idea you are going to get better or die. The mortuary is always waiting there in the forest.” The complex had its own morgue, stationed at a respectful distance and as the Rose Cellar.

Paimio is surviving example of a sanatorium, an isolated residential facility for the treatment of long-term illness from the era when bed rest and healing sunlight were first line of defence against disease.

There has been little call for sanatoria since , so Paimio became a general hospital in the 60’s, then a residential rehabilitation centre for children and families, which is currently and relocated.
