Status: Former General Hospital; Abandoned
This hospital was opened in 1941 as the Monroe Charity Hospital. It served 12 parish areas and in just it’s first year of operation treated over 10,000 patients.
In 1948 the hospital’s name was changed to the EA Conway Memorial Hospital in honor of the Monroe native and Huey Long’s Secretary of State.
In 1983 construction began on a new more modern hospital next door. The new hospital carried the name and opened in 1987 resulting in this hospital being locked up and abandoned.
The new hospital has since changed it’s name again to University Hospital Conway in a partnership with the University of Louisiana and a sister hospital in Shreveport.
While it doesn’t specify private property and/or no trespassing in regards to this location there is no doubt it is both.
It is also very difficult to locate on Google Maps - our map above is based on a set of coordinates - so its not a easy site to find.
This is considered to be one of the most paranormally active places in the State.
Apparitions of patients who met their end in this hospital and former staff are seen still walking the halls and grounds as well as staring out of the broken windows.
Empathic sensations of unease and anxiety to the point of fear are frequntly reported. Normally calm and mild mannered people have run screaming out of this location and/or suffered experiences so overwhelming and intense they prefer not to discuss it.
It is said you never feel alone from the second you step onto the grounds. You are instantly drowned in the energy and watched by thousands of the dead.
