The hospital was built in the forties and remained open until 1988, but even before it closed its doors the staff, patients and visitors were reporting paranormal activity in the building, so imagine what it must be like now that it is abandoned!
One of the most well-known ghosts in residence is a man named TJ who died of a heroin overdose. He was dumped on the front step by his friends, but as they failed to ring the bell nobody discovered him until the next morning by which time he was already dead.
He is said to haunt the hospital but seems to be in good spirits as he tends to joke around with any of the ladies who enter the old hospital. He is particularly fond of pinching them on the butt!
It has also been claimed that if anyone with tattoos or body piercings enters the chapel then the spirits of the nuns who built and operated the hospital will choke or hit them for defiling their bodies.
The on-site caretaker has also described seeing black ‘shapes’ the size of a large dog, and a large man with glowing red eyes! These are just a small number of the many reports that have come from this extremely haunted building!
