There is a Psychiatric Hospital in Choroszcz not too far >from Bialystok
in Eastern Poland. I've visited it. It's been there for a very long
time. There's an interesting history there during WW II. The inmates
basically all were let go or escaped and it was used as a prison camp
for Soviet prisoners of war. Many died or were killed. Also there is a
summer residence or Palace of Count Branicki. there that now is an
interesting museum.

Does anyone know where I can find more information about insane
asylums in 19th century Poland? I'm trying to find locations,
when they were established, the types of conditions they treated,
what they charged, the kinds of therapy they used -- as many
details as possible.
