Able-bodied residents could work on a large farm which sustained most of the hospital's dietary needs, in lieu of paying for room and board and medical care, as well as making wool clothing and rugs that were sold to the public. In 1918, the Spanish influenza epidemic hit the area, and the facility began treating all victims rather than just the indigent, and the word "Poor" was stricken from the name of the facility. During World War II, the U.S. Army turned part of the hospital grounds into Camp Morrow, a long-term care facility after the war, mostly for victims of polio. The actual date of the closure of the hospital was some time in 1988. After it was closed down, the U.S. Marine Corps occasionally used the south campus to perform military training drills. On October 5 2006 during one of the exercises, troops opened a freezer in a former pathology building and discovered a package full of mummified body parts. The coroner's office identified 10 legs, feet and brain matter, and determined that these were amputated medical specimens, rather than the result of foul play. A L.A. Times article reports that they were simply "forgotten in a long-ago move." https://opacity.us/site237_rancho_los..
