The Methodist Episcopal Conference began construction on the building in 1925. A Guthrie nonprofit organization purchased the hospital in 1932 and named it Cimarron Valley Wesley Hospital.

In 1946, the Order of the Sisters of Benedict purchased the hospital and completed construction soon afterward.

St. Anthony Hospital , owned and operated by the Sisters of St. Francis of Maryville, Mo., bought the facility in 1964, renaming it Alvero Heights Hospital .

The name was changed to Logan County Memorial Hospital in 1974.

The hospital was deeded to the county in 1977 and a replacement facility opened west of Guthrie in October, 1978.

In 1982, R&T Properties, a partnership of local businessmen Ray H. Riddle and Hal A. Treadwell, purchased the former Logan County Memorial Hospital and its four acres for an undisclosed price from the Logan County Hospital Trust Authority.

The five-story, 55,000-square-foot building, located at 19th and W Warner in Guthrie, was supposed to be remodeled into 50 to 70 one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartments but the project never got off the ground. Although, the building is said to be haunted, many moves were made to try and turn it into an apartment building without success. Although it looks more like it would be fit for a haunted Paris hotel direct from a movie than a place of living. Many people have claimed to see apparitions in the hospital’s windows. People have had other eerie experiences when they’ve gone adventuring into the building as well. Just like something out of movie set in hotels in London, lights have been know to flicker on and off making for one scary tour.

The OKCPRG-PPRG have been doing research on the property for over 10 years now, covering the entire facility with cameras that have caught numerous bits of evidence over the years. You can read all about their great project at the OKCPRG-PPRG Website.

I was there in 1951 during the Polio epidemic. The sisters provided excellent care.

Jim, I spent a month there in 1949 with Polio and was then transfered to Crippled Childrens Hospital in Oklahoma City, where I spent another month before going home.

In 1950 my mother's parents were traveling to visit my family in moore or norman when my grandfather suffered a heart event near guthrie and was taken to this hosp.He was hospitalized for some weeks and my grandmother slept in his room on a cot. One morning she was found to be dead. She was only 56. Weird! He recovered. I was 4. I have never seen the hosp but feel I should and plan to some day.

I lived down the street from the old hospital for 12 years. I was born at the new Logan County Hospital in 1981 and growing up down the street, being a candy-stripper at the nursing home.. My brother and I even went inside.. I know its haunted. There was a tub/giant sink full of blood. The morgue even smelled like dead. Plus, my aunt was the person that contributed to the hospital shutting down because she sue them for all they had the incubator up too high permanently scarred my cousin's face.
