The hospital was built in 1873 by Samuel F. Lee as a place for himself and his family to live. By 1913 the Lee family had moved out. The county then decided to turn the Lee residence into a home for the elderly who need special care and supervision. It was named by the locals as "County Poor House" and was eventually considered to become a hospital. However it wasn't until 1953 before it became "The New Tooele Hospital". Minor adjustments were made to ensure medical care could be provided to the patients that visited for care. The hospital was seen by the locals as a much more attractive hospital than the old Tooele hospital as the old hospital had no individual restrooms. Unfortunately there was no location identified as a morgue so the hospital designated a room for the dead. There could be long periods of time where the dead could stack up as it was on time permitting for the local mortuary to pick them up. Eventually Tooele built a state of the art hospital and the hospital was closed in 2000. Shortly after its closure the building was converted to a center for the elderly.
EVP, apparitions, possessions, scratching, and phantom noises suggest this hospital to house many spirits and demonic beings.

This was the first investigation for the group but the second for many of our team members. Kim the owner met us at the door and welcomed us in. He was kind enough to let us have free roam of the building without any members of his staff present.
Having visited the building before most of us knew the layout well and also the buildings hotspots so we split off into three teams. Wendy would lead the all girl team. Jared would take his usual crew and Brad led his. The building is large but noise travels through many of the walls. So we had one team stay in the base camp while the others took each side. Again after about 40 minutes we would rotate.
