Waverly Hills Sanatorium

Probably the most haunted hospital in the United States is found in Louisville, Kentucky. The Waverly Hills Sanatorium is believed to manifests many different types of ghosts, spirits and other paranormal manifestations.

The Waverly Hills Sanatorium was built in 1910 for treating people with tuberculosis which was very rampant during that era. It was closed in 1961 because of the discovery of antibiotics which could cure tuberculosis and. During it’s use, there were around 63,000 patients who died because of the disease or through the unusual treatment methods being used in the hospital.

Waverly Hills Sanatorium has a tunnel called the the “body chute”. This tunnel was used for the movement of materials used in building the hospital. The tunnel was eventually used as an alternative route for the dead bodies of patients from the hospital down to the tunnel’s exit at the bottom of the hill.

This is why it was called “the body chute”. Many stories about Waverly Hills involve the body chute and the ghosts that haunt the tunnel, as well as about the doctors who opened up the bodies of dead patients and drained them.

Other Waverly Hills stories involve ghosts of nurses who were working at the hospital. And the most famous of these is about room 502. People claimed to have seen the ghost of a nurse in her uniform in this room, some saying that the ghost demands them to get out of room. It is said that a nurse was found hanged in the room.
