Calmwood Mental Hospital is a mental hospital in Springfield. Ned Flanders voluntarily commits himself after going on a tirade, slandering everyone, including his neighbor, Homer who tried to help him rebuild his house after it was destroyed by a hurricane, even though it was horribly built.
Despite Ned smashing through the gates on entry, they are not repaired during the course of the episode, suggesting that the hospital is either low security, or badly maintained.
Notable patients at Calmwood besides Flanders include Lucille Botzcowski, John Swartzwelder, and Jay Sherman (the last one apparently undergoing a treatment where he has to stop saying his catchphrase "it stinks!", only to fail, with the doctor testing him sarcastically "agreeing" that everything stinks.). Dr. Foster mentions that another patient is a cannibal and that the Simpsons will be 'pleasantly surprised' who it is when he meets him/her. During Bart, Lisa, Marge, and Maggie's tour of the hospital, a man (presumably suffering from paranoid delusions) could be heard yelling "Everyone outside of this room is against me! I can hear you walking by".
