     History
    Opened in 1967 and originally called West Paces Ferry Hospital, the name was later changed to West Paces Medical Center.

    Beds - Total: 294
    Psychiatric unit beds: 31
    Registered nurses: 280

    mutantMandias worked in the psych ward in the Summer of 1990.

    In 1996, Columbia/HCA Healthcare Corp was mulling plans to replace the facility with a new, roughly $60 million hospital.

    It was ultimately closed in December 1999, and the property sat unused for years.

    After being maintained and guarded for 7 years by a very nice man named Earnest who used to take care of the boiler wehn the hospital was open, the corporation finally let him go, and essentially left the property to rot.

    It is now nothing more than a cement slab.
