Abandoned Community Hospital
Yoakum, TX | 303 Hubbard St.

Once a thriving hospital to the city of Yoakum, it now sits abandoned for the last two decades. Stories have surfaced of a mysterious blue nun and dark shadows appearing down hallways along with children spirits running within the walls of this building.

In 1922, the city of Yoakum built a community hospital from cash and land donated by the late John Huth. During the great depression, the hospital was no longer able to support itself and became a detriment to the city. It was during this time that the Sisters of the Incarnate Word and Blessed Sacrament of Victoria would takeover management of the facility. Over the next few decades the hospital grew in size as the community grew and things seemed to be going well. However, in the 1980’s, the hospital was once again hit by financial hardship caused by a major change in Medicare. This caused the Sisters of the Sacrament to step down, and the Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word of San Antonio would take over and eventually updated the facility.

In the early 1990s, the hospital was hit with it’s most tragic event, one that would stun the community of Yoakum… A young nurse was working in the Intensive Care Unit and during her shift she received a visit from her distraught husband. In a rage, he argued with her in the waiting room of the second floor, pulled out a gun, and shot her several times before running out of the hospital. Doctors and nurses rushed her to the ICU, but the gunshots were fatal.

In 1997, the hospital moved to a new state-of-the art facility only miles away abandoning the current location. As the building sits unused for the past 20 years, the memories of the hospital still remain, but there are some memories that will haunt this location forever. Just wait until you see what energies Mark and Billy encounter…
