The Spooky Stories Behind The Abandoned Kempton Park Hospital

It is said that spirits tend to be more concentrated in places that have experienced a lot of deaths or births. In this sense, hospitals should be the most optimal spaces for hauntings and ghost sightings. Yes, many of us have already heard stories like these from people who have experienced such phenomena in the hospital territories, particularly after midnight or during the rainy night hours.


The strange history and the spooky stories behind the abandoned Kempton Park Hospital of Johannesburg also convey such dark mysteries that force thousands of paranormal seekers to put this place in their must-see list to visit in South Africa.

In 1996, it was after the Christmas party, when the hospital abruptly closed its doors and never reopened. It seemed as if they had realised what they were actually doing in the hospital and they fled to never return again.


Once known as a luxurious hospital in the city of Johannesburg, the  Kempton Park Hospital has now become a dark shell for a number of ghosts. Various expensive pieces of stuff including all the surgical tools and machines were left abandoned there. Even after a few years of closure, Jars of kidneys on the floor, blood stains, the purple graffiti on the wall, blood-spattered sheets on hospital beds, open files and x-rays strewn across the tables could be seen there. There has been always an unpleasant smell in the air in everywhere inside the building.

The Kempton Park Hospital is alleged to be haunted since the time it was abandoned and visitors claim to have heard babies crying, doors opening and shutting and to have seen the figure of a man roaming the halls. Some visitors have even claimed that their photos taken inside the building-halls were afterwards found obscured by strange white sheen.

The Kempton Park Hospital was closed by the government allegedly without any explanation. Since then numerous promises of breathing new life into the once growing, top class medical facility, have been given, but none has been kept. And over the years thousands of people especially the paranormal lovers and the mystery seekers who were fascinated by the abandoned hospital and its suspicious history, reportedly bribed security guards to let them into the building at night. Many of them have been confirmed about those popular haunted stories of the Kempton Park Hospital whereas many have denied all these paranormal claims saying these are nothing but some engrossing rumors.

Maybe we will never reveal the truth behind the Kempton Park Hospital incidents, but the popular stories heard from people's mouths make the desire to explore this ghostly hospital from inside, obviously on a peaceful moonless night.
