Thanks, It's a very strange building. Do you know if the hospital owns it? I think it would be cool to go in and look around. I'm curious as to why it has sat empty for so many years.

I almost died there 27 years ago. Same thing still going on in Williamson tho. The hospitals haven't gotten any better since you about died man. They still are killing people every year....

that place killed a lot of people with drunk russell salton and other side show phonies. Gladys Cantees destroyed many people up there with her self-righteous attitude and judgemental attitude.

Yeppers,I remember we all called it The Butcher Shop back in the day.Anyone that knew anything about the goings on in Williamson back in the day, had the good sense to go to ARH.

I had both my babies at the old hospital..Dr Salton delievered both, no complications..I remember Jenny well,Goldie..Mrs Cantees..Shirley,I recieved great care and so did my babies..you wont that kind of care now..Dr Salton may have liked the bottle but unless one goes to the Lord I figure he needed some sort of mending of the mind with all he seen he was a great dr and many wanted him..He always asked about my parents. great nurses wonderful docs

Our daughter was born there in 1985. Does anyone remember Dr. Salton & Dr. Headley? I remember a nurse there in the OB ward named Jenny (can't remember her last name). I was young and she looked real tough and mean...BUT...she was sooo kind, nice & compassionate! It taught me to never judge a book by it's cover!
My Grandmother, Mary [Maggie} Cochran was a nurse under Dr. Salton up on the hill. I remember him as being a tough Dr. And Mrs. Cantees was my Grandmother's head nurse. WOW! The memories come back at reading this thread.

wondering If any one can tell me who Murf was? back then (1961)when my son was born there was this nice lady, I thought was a nurse,was one of the kindest ladies I have ever met,was so nice and caring that helped me so much,she had Her church praying for me sent me a card with names from their church,it got lost after all those years
I've wondered if Her last name may have been Murphy,I know she is probably gone on but not forgotten by me,She seemed Christian.
Dr. Salton delivered my son,I stayed in that Hospital a week,and I said not Him never again,something diffently was wrong, Dr. Scott delivered our Daughter perfectly,Now if anyone knew Murf,just want you to know she sure helped me, the nurses were nice to me...

I know for a fact that a man lept from the 3rd floor window who was a prisoner in the late 60s/early 70s. He died. He is supposed to still roam that hospital.
