Kingfisher Hospital

9
City/Town: Kingfisher
Location Class: Hospital
Year Built: 1940
Year Abandoned: 2009
Status: Demolished
Photojournalist: Michael Schwarz

The City of Kingfisher needed an updated facility that had a better location, with the latest technology. This new hospital will serve the community with new equipment and better medical care. The old building had been built in 1940 and was not in ADA compliance. By building this new hospital, they are able to expand and provide OB/GYN services.

After many years of service and changes in health code the hospital came to a close in 2009 due many needy repairs. Construction for a new hospital started in 2007 and finished in 2009.

WOW…I grew up in that hospital and the attached Clinic. My father is Dr. Mark Gregory. I remember eating in that cafeteria, “sneaking” into the hospital for the vending machine when my parents were working late in the Clinic. I remember hanging out with the nurses in the labor and delivery nurses’ station, the snacks in the gift shop. I never saw pictures of it abandoned, just demolished. Thank you so much for preserving my memories.

Extraordinary story and pictures. Simply a note…It was initially called Maurice Willows Hospital when it was initially implicit 1921. In 1941, the City of Tulsa supplanted Willows with Moton Municipal Hospital, named after Russa Moton. In the 1980s or 1990s chat rooms
it was changed to Morton, named after a conspicuous African-American doctor. ..

For a small town that building sure got tore up quick. Vandals are bad in that town it seems.

No, the vandalism is really not that bad in Kingfisher. The hospital was directly across from the Kingfisher Heritage School, which housed middle school and high school grades. When the hospital was abandoned in 2009, it was essentially used as a hang out for them. In 2011, they changed the school to house 3rd and 4th graders. The hospital was demolished.
