Haunted Clark Air Base Hospital, Angeles City, Pampanga, Philippines
Similarly to the now haunted Fort Santiago in Manila, the hospital was used by the Japanese during the war, as well as the Americans.
The haunted hospital stayed open until 1991 when it was submerged in volcanic ash from the world’s largest volcanic eruption of the last 100 years. The eruption of Mount Pinatubo occurred on June 15, 1991.
Bursts of gas-charged magma exploded into umbrella-shaped ash clouds which sent the volcanic ash descending towards the valleys and covered the hospital and Angeles City which sits 20km east of the Mount Pinatubo.
The damage from the ash forced the hospital to close and it was eventually abandoned, that’s when the ghost stories and paranormal phenomena began.
Ghosts of the haunted hospital
Many visitors have experience unexplained phenomena at the now haunted Clark Air Base Hospital and due to the amount of soldiers that died there, locals believe it’s haunted by their spirits.
Screams, moans of pain, echoing voices and even phantom footsteps have been heard at the hospital, said to belong to the spirits of the people who died there many years ago.
Visitors and a security guard have claimed to hear a baby crying on the first floor of the building which was previously a pediatric center. Some have even claimed to see apparitions wandering the derelict parts of the decaying hospital.
Many parts of the building are still covered in volcanic ash as nature takes its course on the structure. The building is not open to the public due to the safety issues, but you can still get in there to explore… as they say in the Philippines, money talks.
