elizabeth seton hospital

Does anyone know anything about this old hospital in the Bronx? It was located in Riverdale, at about W 232nd St & Henry Hudson Parkway, and allegedly burned down in the late 50's....Can't find any info on it.

Back in the late 1950's I lived in Riverdale near the old Seton Hospital.  Us kids use to think it was haunted!
