Gowanda State Hospital was established in 1894. Architects August Carl Esenwein and James Addison Johnson were architects for the hospital. Gowanda Osteopathic Hospital first opened in 1986 on a 500-acre tract of land. In the 1930s, Gowanda State Homeopathic Hospital West Group had 1,200 beds and treated approximately 1,429 patients. In the late 1950s, Gowanda had become a state-run psychiatric hospital. In 1982, Gowanda State Hospital was transformed into a prison called the Collins Correctional Institution. In 1994, the Gowanda Correctional facility was opened adjacent to the Collins Correctional Institution.
Unfortunately, much of the buildings construction and maintenance required handling asbestos pipe covering, gaskets, insulating cement, packing material, and vinyl floor tiles. Asbestos also coated pipes, pumps, steam traps, and valves. Asbestos insulation was constantly repaired and removed, and steamfitters and plumbers replaced asbestos gaskets and packing weekly.
Many of our clients who worked at Gowanda State Hospital have been diagnosed with malignant mesothelioma and lung cancer.
