State Hospital

Lima State Hospital, which opened in 1915, served dangerous and homicidal patients from other state hospitals and mentally ill inmates from Ohio’s prisons. Lima staff also examined certain offenders for the courts to determine whether their crimes could have been caused by mental illness, mental deficiency or psychopathic personality.
