Originally called “Morton Memorial Hospital”, the Morton Health Care Center was moved to a new and modern structure in 2006. The original Morton Health Care center sits and slowly decays. When it was first built, it was just a single 3 story brick building, then a large addition was added onto it as well as 2 other buildings later on.

I wish there was some way to Renovate the building and use it for good…. some public service or maybe for apartments for veterans or something useful.

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 it was changed to Morton, named after a conspicuous African-American doctor. ..

Hi Kaye,
I work at the new Morton Center on Lansing. Many of the old birth records can still be found. Contact Morton if you are trying to locate birth records.

This place is in North Tulsa, between Peoria and Lewis, on Pine st. I work right down the street from here, have driven past so many times. They have recently been tearing down buildings out here, including a rec center at the corner or Pine and Lewis. The homeless pop really goes up around here when buildings get shut down. Warm places to sleep.

…………I don't know where any of those are, just the Health Clinic in Tulsa. But, the others make a very good HisTorY. I like reading about the building built before 1950……and had a field house and 3 other buildings where classes were taught.

What a shame this facility has been left to rack and ruin.. and that there has been so much vandalism in such a short time! I cannot imagine what these vandals were thinking.. or if they were thinking at all.

I am part of a fledgling investigative team that will be going by the name of, Necronomicon Productions. We won’t be posting any videos for a while, as we want to collect a small library before starting a Youtube channel, so we can regularly post content. If you have any places we can do paranormal investigations, it would be greatly appreciated. You can reach me at DireHalflings@gmail.com, or feel free to contact me by phone at 918-995-1130. I invite anyone with location information to contact me.
