Cottage plan hospitals, or segregate planned hospitals are institutions made up of a multitude of individual buildings usually, but not always, connected by tunnels. This style of asylum planning allowed for a better patient management where more noisy and violent patients could be kept farther away from the more manageable patients who could be disturbed by the violent patient's outbursts. Also please note that this institution building plan is also known as the colony plan in England.
