Kahuna Research Group recently visited the old Hilo Memorial Hospital and what remained of the original nursery after an intense fire occurred there in the past, fatally injuring both nurses as well as infants. Nothing says paranormal hotspot like an old hospital, especially one where many traumatic deaths took place. Nowadays, people report hearing the faint cries of babies thought to have passed in the blaze. We decided to investigate to see if we could record any crying sounds on film - and to see if anything else catches our attention.
Strangeusa.com, a website that claims to have the ultimate collection of the strange, writes this about the old hospital:
"Located in Hilo town at the site of the old hospital in Kaumana. Pass the old basketball court; take the access road around the main building to the rear parking lot. Years ago the old nursery broke out in flames burning the nurses as well as the infants. You can hear babies crying through the halls and strange noises all around you. There are definitely spirits there."
For a paranormal team that is relatively new to the scene, this seemed like the perfect place to investigate. It would give us some additional training as well as more of a perspective on what we might have to deal with in the future as the Big Island's premier paranormal research group. KRG member Jason previously contacted the current hospital administration and got our group permission to spend the afternoon investigating the grounds - something we always try to do.
Upon arriving at the hospital, we checked in with the staff and let them know we were about to begin. There are many buildings on the property. The main building can be seen in the picture above, and the old nursery building to the right of the main building seen below. Today, only remnants of the burned down nursery remain. We thought it was peculiar how the remains were not completely removed from the property, demolished like you'd think they would be. We started with the old burned out nursery which was the main reason we were there, but eventually explored the other buildings as well.
