Smithtown General Hospital - Real Haunt in Smithtown NY
While still operational, Smithtown General was a small hospital of dubious quality. It eventually fell under the weight of numerous lawsuits, and closed down in the 1990s. Before its demise, people claimed to see a ghostly lady wearing a white gown on the building’s second floor near the surgery rooms. The hospital was demolished in 2007, but could the lady in white remain?
Hospital History Update
This is not quite right. St. Johns Hospital, also in Smithtown, had gotten word that North Shore Hospital was interested in buying Smithtown General, which by then, was called Community Hospital of Western Suffolk (CHOWS). In an effort to ward off competition, it rushed in and purchased the hospital. It was an ill-advised move that saddled St. Johns with a ton of debt. They offered nurses a buyout, never expecting the number of nurses who would take that offer. That deepened the debt considerably. St. Johns which was an Episcopal Hospital is now St. Catherines, a Catholic Hospital. So you can see how this story endedPosted 7/9/21
