Steps toward tearing down the now-vacant, former Corning Hospital will likely begin in the coming months.
That word comes Monday from our newspaper partner, The Leader.
According to Guthrie Corning Hospital Board Chairman Phil Roche, the whole process of demolition and remediation of the property on East Denison Parkway will take between six to eight months.
The cost is estimated to be around $8 to $10 million dollars and Roche says the demolition will likely be completed in the beginning of 2017.
Internal demolition work will begin this spring and throughout the tear-down process testing will be done to, “ensure the site is environmentally clean.”
