Chudnovsky in 1882 as the Alexandrovskaya Municipal Barracks Hospital with 300 beds. It was housed in the wooden barracks on the former Alexandrovsky Parade Grounds (hence the name) and was intended for patients with infectious diseases. From the very beginning the barracks had water and electricity supply lines. The first disinfection plant in Russia was installed in the Hospital for Infectious Diseases (1883), there was a carriage for the transportation of patients, water from the Neva was examined and research work was developed. In 1889 it was called Botkin City Barracks Hospital. In the 1930s it was reconstructed, and new stone wings were added; at that time the hospital received the name of the Clinical Hospital for Infectious Diseases. In the 1960s-70s 5 modern wings were added. It serves as a clinical base for all chairs of infectious diseases in St. Petersburg medical institutes. In1995, it became the city's central infections service. It has a hospital (with 1,200 beds) and a polyclinic. N.P. Gundobin, F.I. Pasternatsky, V.P. Sirotinin and other scientists worked at the hospital, as did writer V.V. Veresaev (Smidovich). On the territory of the hospital there is a monument to Botkin (sculptor I.Y. Ginzburg).
