Hillcrest tuberculosis hospital

I'm looking for information about Hillcrest tuberculosis hospital. I think my great great grandmother Magnolia 'Maggie' Caroline Staley~Prater might have died there or at least was there for some extended stay.
Her son Perry E Prater's prison record states she was consumptive(TB?)and some of her children lived in Knox Co, Indiana for a time before moving to Howard Co, Indiana...Which they appear on 1930 census without her; with their father John Wesley Prater.

So going on a hunch...I feel she may have lived there being there is no record of her after 1920 census being in Dupont, Indiana then.

If anyone knows if I can access patients record please contact me Lyn Richey at
