Local Landmark Torn Down In Pieces
It's been a community fixture since the 1920's, but Shands AGH is in pieces today.
The old Alachua General Hospital is unrecognizable to former patients these days.
Gone are the long medical wings, packed lobbies and doctors hurrying from floor to floor and in their place, a new sort of hustle and bustle.
There's a reason for this slow and methodical process, Shands hopes to recycle over 90 percent of the old buildings.
The tear down of Shands AGH should be completed by this December and at the same time Shands is working on their demolition, UF has broken ground on the new Innovation Park which will be built on the same site.
