Gothic Hospital is a book by Australian author Gary Crew, written in 2001.

The book is about a teenager named Johnny Doolan who discovers lots of old gothic books in his attic after his younger sister dies of tubercolosis, which results in his parents breaking up. The books' chapters are replaced by "sessions" as the book is partly set at a psychiatrist's office.

In the book, Johnny claims to his psychiatrist that when he reads the books in his attic, the book "fills itself in" with colour, and Johnny becomes part of the story. One book Johnny particularly becomes engrossed in, is a book about an old Gothic hospital, and Johnny eventually believes that his father is trapped in the book.
