1939-1948 In the late '30s, a tourist steamboat catches fire and capsizes off the coast of New Kipling, drowning more than 1,000 passengers. The bodies of the victims wash up on the shores of Mid Island, and the hospital is quickly converted into a makeshift morgue to handle all the corpses. The remaining survivors of the shipwreck are treated at MIBH, but with limited resources and growing costs, the MIBH is unable to recover from the specter of a tragedy of that magnitude. The hospital closes its doors abruptly one day in 1948.
1948-1983 Mid Island Bay Hospital rots away in obscurity, left as a decrepit relic on the forgotten island. The doctors, nurses, patients, orderlies, and rest of the staff leaves everything and disappears one afternoon in the late 1940s. Furniture, files, and records are left without hesitation, leaving a full shell of a hospital to age.
1983-Present Day Daylight's main character, Sarah Gwynn wakes up in the lobby of Mid Island Bay Hospital, but we don't know a lot about the history of Mid Island. Prior to present day, the last major interaction with Mid Island was nearly 30 years ago. In the early '80s, Mid Island Bay Hospital was a major interest to the G&C Investments Corp, who had designs on renovating the old hospital and turning it into a high-end hospice catering to the wealthy.
As G&C is in the final stages of completing its due diligence to take control of the island and its property, a team of contractors and experts is sent to do on-site research. A short time later G&C abruptly cancels the deal and leaves New Kipling altogether. Curious, the township sends in a team to follow up on G&Cs research, discovering, amongst other things, an abandoned excavation site with 12 grave-sized holes dug in the ground.
