Pine Circle Sanitarium was a local mental institution in the city of Port Charles.

History

In 1979, Heather Webber began her next scheme attempting to drive Diana Taylor insane in hopes of gaining custody of her son. Due to Heather's manipulations, Diana grows even more dependent on Heather to help with P.J.. Heather later purchased LSD and put it in Diana's drinking glass. However, little P.J. mixes up the glasses and Heather unknowingly drinks the drug. When Heather began hallucinating, Jeff was forced to have her committed to Pine Circle Sanitarium in June 1979. With Heather away, Alice came to see her daughter's manipulations and Diana realized she'd lose P.J. if she didn't marry Jeff.

In 1988, Olivia Jerome, having suffered a brain injury in a shooting, was sent to Pine Circle.

Duke Lavery testifies against Victor Jerome hoping to finally put him in jail, and Anna Devane has Olivia temporarily released to get a confession out of her. With Duke's testimony and Olivia's confession, Victor was sent to prison. Victor then made a prison break to see Lucy Coe, whom he was infatuated with. When she rejected him, he swallowed a pendant he had had engraved for her, choked on it and died. Lucy went to Alan Quartermaine for help, and they dumped his body in the lake.

In 1990, after Victor's death, Julian Jerome took over the organization. He then made a plan to kill Duke and neutralize his sister once and for all by framing her for the murder. Julian kidnapped Olivia, who had already escaped from Pine Circle.
