During the late 1800's, Pennsylvania built many hospitals for coal miners, these hospitals were referred to as State Hospitals for Miners or State General Hospitals. These hospitals were not built as psychiatric facilities, but rather as general medical hospitals. In 1985, Pennsylvania began the transfer of these hospitals from State ownership into private or community facilities. As of 1992, all have been divested from State ownership.
