The Albany Business Review published an article on St. Peter’s Health Partners’ plans to demolish the east wing of the Albany Memorial Campus building.
From the story:
A standalone, four-story, 54,110-square-foot wing and the pedestrian bridge that connects it to the main building would come down under the plan, according to documents filed with the city of Albany.
The health system said in a statement that it would be cost-prohibitive to upgrade the aging east wing as it determines its needs for the future. SPHP said outpatient volume has grown significantly at Albany Memorial over the past few years. The east wing was built in 1959, and the connector was built in 1989.
“Although we are still determining how best to use the space that will emerge from this revitalization of the Albany Memorial Campus, that decision is being made with the community’s healthcare needs in mind,” SPHP said in a statement. “A vibrant Albany Memorial Campus, one designed to provide needed and contemporary care for members of our community, is critically important to SPHP.”
