The Limansk Hospital is a location in S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Clear Sky.
The area of the abandoned hospital is lacking the Zone's normal irradiated areas and lands of anomalies, it is made up for by the vast quantities of hostiles in the area. Nearly all of the hospital has been occupied by the Monolith and most of the paths that lead further towards the Chernobyl NPP are almost always fenced off by a machine gun emplacement or some kind of fortification.
The actual history of the hospital is unclear, although it is almost certain that the hospital was used by the inhabitants of Limansk. In Clear Sky, it appears that an earthquake or an emission of epic proportions may have occurred here. You can see this because vast areas in the hospital (especially the entrance at the start) have been caved in or have very uneven floors with walls falling to pieces.
However, it obvious that the area has been employed as a last line of defense by the Monolith. You can see this because of premeditated precise sniping points and MG pill-boxes. There is also a hint to an enemy base being nearby because as you progress through the structure, your PDA intercepts a radio communication summoning an attack helicopter to your position. The player must destroy this helicopter to proceed to the Chernobyl NPP.
Originally, the hospital (known as Catacombs1) was supposed to be an underground location used by the player to reach Agroprom Underground and Yantar. The entrance was hidden in the railway tunnel connecting Garbage and Agroprom. It should have been discovered by diggers a couple of weeks before the big Blowout and seized by Bandits shortly after. The planned next level, Bridge over river Pripyat, was also cut. However, late in development, it was moved and used to replace Pripyat Underground as a connecting level between the NPP and Limansk-13.
- The hospital is known as the Deserted Hospital in game.
