  1. when you are inside the hospital. one of the hallways leading to the kitchen there is a wall with a bunch of pictures of the hospital from back in the 50-60’s i believe. there is one picture that actually has a bunch of nurses working. in the back ground there is one nurse working you just see her uniform like someone is in it. but if you look closely she has no legs and the uniform is up right. i worked there when the prison had a wing for inmate prisoners being treated. so when i was posted there again i took a magnifying glass and took a double take at that photograph behold there are no legs or a stand holding the nurses uniform up. I believe it is a legit photograph of a ghost there. if anyone works there and reads this post please take that picture its before you go to the cafeteria.

    • They took the old photos down during the most recent remodel. I had a photo of it but lost it years ago. It was such a disturbing picture. I asked one of the security guards where the pix went but she didn’t know. I also took care of an elderly lady who was a surgical nurse there back in the day. She agreed that the place is totally haunted.

  2. my father was at St marys in his final time of life. I had driven down to see him from Phoenix. I was walking into the hospital to see him, and an older lady in a long white dress was walking beside me and said your dad will be okay, IT is coming to be his time he is at peace with what is to come. I turned to thank her and she was gone. My wife was walking several feet behind me asked me if I was alright and I aksed her where the lady went that was walking beside me. She said there hadnt been anyone beside me, She thought I was just thinking out loud…

  3. My friend is a nurse at this hospital and she worked on a wing of the hospital that hadn’t been used in years and that was the time that Tucson Heart had paired with this hospital. My friend had been hearing people walking after visiting hours and the people who were in this wing of the hospital were very sick and were cardio patients meaning they couldn’t walk. So my friend then kept hearing the footsteps and so she didn’t want to turn around so she used her phone to take a picture of what was behind her and found that there was a ghostly nun behind her.

  4. I went to saint Mary’s Hospital for chest pains, i talked to a entinty that said he had to check my EKGs, a female doctor came in who said she was the only doctor working,the room got really cold.

  5. My mom is here on 3rd floor. Staying here with her now. Last nite had to go potty around 1am went to pottys by waiting room by elevator. Was washing hands door opened nobody came in got paper towel went out right away because i figured that maybe they thought potty in use since one stall but when went out nobody around. Then noticed someone standing outside in patio area that says you can’t go out to. Got chill down spine & hairs on arm stood up. Couldn’t make out face just dark shadow. I put some speed in my step & hurried back to my moms room. Still here today & not to sure bout going to restroom by myself. This place always creeped me out as a kid. Still does. Told my bf and said—their coming to get you Barbara….ugh >:/ told him wait till he needs to go to the potty. Keeping me eyes straight & down & using the potty in my moms room. Dont wanna see anymore or hear anymore ghosties.

  6. My mom was a patient here in the mid-1990s, and I spent a great deal of time visiting her at all hours of the night. I have always been interested in the “paranormal” and was aware of the stories that circulated about the hospital even then. I was actually looking for any evidence of ghostly goings-on but I saw/experienced nothing out of the ordinary. The place may very well be haunted – but I can honestly say that in the many hours I spent there (going up and down in the elevators, walking through empty, darkened corridors during the night) nothing unusual happened.
