    Oregon state hospital was the one in "One flew over the cuckoo's nest"

    Cuckoo's Nest sounds better though.

    Baltimore State Hospital for the Criminally Insane was the joint where they kept Hannibal Lecter.

    They were the two I could think of. Shawshank was not a mental asylum but there were some wackos there. Not sure where Raymond was from in Rain Main?

    Milson Island or Rabbit/Peat Island at Brooklyn adjacent to the Freeway Dan. Excellent fishing.

    These days Milson Island is administered by the NSW Department of the Arts, Sport and Recreation and accommodates up to 170 schoolchildren or corporate types for bonding retreats; for most of last century, however, it was used as a mental asylum and a prison.

    Not far downriver, near the freeway, is Peat Island, formerly known as Rabbit Island, where a psychiatric hospital was established in 1911. For decades the facility housed "inebriates" and the criminally insane; two years ago the NSW Government announced it would be redeveloped into village-style accommodation for the elderly.

    all sorts of health facilities there including both your suggestions, I think the new hospital is going in that area to but am not certain on that.
