Forest Hills Sanitarium was a local mental institution in the city of Port Charles.

History

In 1980, Sarah Abbott was locked up with Heather Webber in Forest Hills Sanitarium and they soon became friends. Sarah kept Heather’s secrets and even hid her gun in the doll she always carried around. Sarah incorrectly believed that she drowned her sister.

Heather emerged from her state of delusion, faked catatonia and escaped from Forest Hills. She went to see Jeff but discovered he was now in love with Anne Logan. She then returned to Forest Hills. While institutionalized Heather would sneak out often. On one of her excursions she ran into Scott Baldwin, who was reeling over his pending divorce from Laura Webber. The two shared a few drinks and had a one-night-stand at Kelly's diner, which resulted in a son, Franco. Heather never told Scott she was pregnant and hid her pregnancy. Once her son was born, she sold him to a nurse Betsy Frank, but continued to admire him from afar. Months later she was officially released.

In 1981, Heather faked hysteria and convinced Jeff's brother and sister-in-law Rick and Lesley to send her back to Forest Hills. From there, Heather set her plan in motion to kill Diana Taylor and frame Anne for the murder.
