The Original Crestman Hospital in July 2012, less than three years before the attacks

The original Elijah S. Crestman Memorial Hospital was an academic teaching and research hospital owned by Devoner University located in the neighborhood of Jennaviva, Adustelan. It was completed in 1964. At the time of its completion, it was the largest hospital on Carraway Island, with over 900 beds.

The hospital was destroyed in a terrorist bombing on March 30, 2015; 239 patients, physicians, and university personnel died in the attack and nearly 2,000 more were injured.

The Hospital after the attack, March 30, 2015

In the immediate aftermath, all surviving residing patients and newly admitted patients (many injured from the attacks) were transferred to the Incuba General Hospital in Incuba, which experienced dramatic overflow and had to reallocate patients to several other nearby hospitals and clinics. In the few months following the attack, Incuba was able to sustain the more moderate influx of patients from Adustelan. After several weeks of enduring endless bureaucratic red tape, a new hospital began construction two months later in City Center, on the former site of several abandoned rowhouses, and opened in November 2015.

The Carrawayan Souls National Memorial opened in January 2016 on the site of the former hospital.
