    The Old Tooele Hospital


    The hospital was built in 1873 by Samuel F. Lee as a place for himself and his family to live. By 1913 the Lee family had moved out. The county then decided to turn the Lee residence into a home for the elderly who need special care and supervision. It was named by the locals as "County Poor House" and was eventually considered to become a hospital. However it wasn't until 1953 before it became "The New Tooele Hospital". Minor adjustments were made to ensure medical care could be provided to the patients that visited for care. The hospital was seen by the locals as a much more attractive hospital than the old Tooele hospital as the old hospital had no individual restrooms. Unfortunately there was no location identified as a morgue so the hospital designated a room for the dead. There could be long periods of time where the dead could stack up as it was on time permitting for the local mortuary to pick them up. Eventually Tooele built a state of the art hospital and the hospital was closed in 2000. Shortly after its closure the building was converted to a center for the elderly.
