    I worried at the hillman Healthcare center in the late 90’s early 2000’s I’ve heard at night late when no one was around in the west end of the second floor is a rounded kind of room that was the old nursery when it was a hopital. At night they say you can hear babies crying. I also now the the basement on the west side facing k street there is an old dirt tunnel I guess they used in the 40’s or 50’s to move people around. I was a delivery drive and had to sometime put my stuff up at night like 5:30 no one was around and it felt freaky.

  2. I would like to have my Paranormal Team set up there. I just need to find out where can I start to check out for our team to go there to do an investigation. I’m new in this area of Tulare and don’t know who to make contact with that is in charge of that Clinic. Anyone knows? If so contact me. Please. Thank you. T.P.I.T Paranormal Team in Tulare.

      Hey do you really have Paranormal team? That’s awesome! I always wanted to make a pranormal team too, but my friends that I know are too scared for these kinda stuff!! But that’s awesome! My name I’d victor!! I would like to talk a little more so I can learn how it is to do paranormal hunting!!

  3. I also worked at the Hillman Healthcare Clinic, from 2010-2012 I remember they were starting to do remodel but it didn’t matter, I saw the elevator go up and down on it’s own and also as you were walking towards the older area you could automatically feel a tempature drop, it had a different smell and the lighting in the older area always looked hazy even though they used the same lights in all areas it was always dimmer. I had to work late closing in the older area which became the OB/Gyn department, I was alone except for one other person and security gard, I heard children laughing and playing upstairs put no-one else was there.

  4. I’m 49 years old now, but remember this historic hospital very well. My mother “Martha”, who is still alive, used to work there for 40 years beginning at age 19. We used to visit the hospital when she worked nights as children, climbing the west end stairs to watch the fireworks. She always told us stories of heavy footsteps on the stairs, the elevator going up/down on its own, once she was on it to go to second floor and she said it ALWAYS stopped off in the basement where they used it as a morgue, cold eerie feeling. she was panicked and started to take the stairs instead. She told of one night operator who quite on the same night that she received a phone call from a deceased co-worker and call lights going off all night with no occupants in them. The medical records building next door was also a haunting experience when she went to retrieve a medical file and the door locked behind her. She pounded until security came, she was shaken and crying…he told her this place is haunted and “never, come out here by yourself”.. needless to say she did not and if workers needed to go pull a file as a night shift team…. they always went with somebody….I believe this hospital is definitely haunted! Its a historic place and many have passed away in the rooms or operating tables. In fact the small buildings around back once used as a clinic before Hillman opened…also Haunted ….the entire grounds are! I went in those clinic rooms to wait for mom to get off work and everything looked very old… the sinks, the doors , the floors…older than the hospitals settings.

  5. and oh Yeah! Mom said while waiting outside for us…her ride at 1130PM she always sensed someone watching her from the second floor window that faces Bardsley ave. and passerbyers would report a person standing there off/on beginning in evening hours to late night. We had to pass the hospital to get home…so I never wanted to look that way. And yes babies crying when no admits were present. The hospital would shut down that floor when there weren’t any current deliveries but still could hear children. One siting is a little boy in the hallway that leads from specialty clinic to the ob/peds window. Another night shift team reporting a deceased co-worker being paged overhead…. they called the operator to let her know that wasn’t funny nor appropriate…operator replying she heard the page also….but didn’t do it! Too many occurences to name!
