This hospital opened in 1961 to help ease the overcrowding situation at the Oregon State Hospital. It closed in 1995 and after the closure, the site was embroiled in controversy. The local residents did not want the buildings to be converted into a women's prison so close to their neighborhoods. Shortly after the controversy the site was sold to a private developer who tore down the buildings and built a residential development on the old state grounds.
