Previous to the hospital, the Cumberland Hotel was built on this property. At some point it – either the late 19th century or early 20th century – the hotel had a fire. While there are virtually no historical records regarding this fire it has been confirmed there were fatalities.

The original hospital – the old building – was constructed in 1938 and opened in 1939.

By the 1970’s the hospital occupied it’s entire block with state of the art operating theaters and an ICU.

In the 1990’s the so-called “new building” was added containing 4 storeys.

The hospital was closed in 2013 and left abandoned. In 2022 the same people who saved the Old South Pittsburgh Hospital and turned it into a paranormal research center as well.

This location is open for day and night paranormal investigations; it is also used as a movie set.


Paranormal Activity

Reports of paranormal activity date back to before the hospital was closed.

In a section of the hospital called A3 – which was used as the cardiac unit and part of ICU – a nurse named Joanna worked until the 1970’s. She died fairly young from a heart attack herself but not before promising co-workers she would be making visits after death.

The apparition of Joanna is still seen walking the halls and rooms of A3 forever completing her rounds and checking on patients from the past. Or perhaps checking on patients who remained here after death.

Other Reported Activity: apparitions of former staff and patients; shadow figures; touches, tugs and pulls from unseen entities; disembodied voices; unexplained sounds from whispers to loud bangs; phantom sounds of babies crying; figures standing in the windows; objects moving on their own; doors opening and closing on their own; electrical disturbances; light anomalies; feelings of unease and feelings of being watched and not being alone.
