Old Springfield hospitol being torn down

Recommended Posts


What's the street address? I thought I was fairly familiar with Springfield, but I can't recall ever seeing that building. Maybe it's outside the historic district? I can't imagine a building of that size inside the district being demolished without a HUGE ordeal.

I have never seen that either. It must be out of the district. It is a shame it is being torn down though. Someone probably plans a used car lot there or parking lot. Typical.

Its a part of the Shands Hospital complex, just west of Hogans Creek and south of 8th St., or right across the street from the official historic district. I noticed the building a couple of months ago, but I was shocked to see that it was being demolished, without hearing a thing about, considering the size.

If this is indeed part of the Shands complex, I believe a VA Clinic is being built on this site as well as a parking deck.

Does anyone know what's replacing this old hospital building in Springfield?

Technically, that building lay just outside the Springfield Historic District in Durkeeville. Terribly unfortunate for the building and the general aesthetic of the area; IMHO, there are far better candidates for demolition in that complex.
