A fascinating story idea, Laycrew, especially if the girl who lived there had seen the ghosts. Why not write a children's story? Kids LOVE ghost stories. How about something like, THE HAUNTED HOUSE OF MARY LOUISE for a title? After all it was just a house for 24 years, in between being a hospital and an arts center. In fact, the time when it was empty could be the perfect setting for strange portents and ghostly happenings. Love it. Cricket magazine (middle grade) would probably publish such a story, especially if it was based on the truth. A highly competitive market, but not impossible.

since it's been written about already, there's no good reason for not using the real place and its name... if there's no reason for you to mention what it is now, don't...
