Demolition of Former Outpatient Services Building Takes Place at Evangelical Community Hospital

June 26, 2018


A ceremonial demolition of the former outpatient services building was held on the Evangelical Community Hospital Campus recently. The building is being removed to make way for more parking for the Patient Room Improvement Modernization and Expansion (PRIME) project set to officially begin construction later this summer.

Taking the first swipe at the building, which is over two decades old, was President and CEO, Kendra Aucker. Once she was done, she invited James Morgan, MD, FACS, a long-time general surgeon at Evangelical and former Medical Director of Wound and Hyperbaric Medicine, to the stage to take a swipe. For many years, his specialties operated inside the walls of this building.

A small crowd of employees and volunteers gathered to watch and cheer as this familiar sight on campus took its first step toward demolition.
