Mount Carmel West hospital time of death: Spring 2019

The eight-story hospital in Franklinton will kick the bucket come spring 2019. Mount Carmel West will be demolished and replaced with a 210-bed hospital in Grove City, slated to open November 2018.

A new emergency department will open on the Franklinton campus in a vacant surgery center in December 2018 and an expansion of the College of Nursing is also planned, reports The Dispatch.

The demoed area will be used for green space with potential for affordable housing.

About 50 percent of the clientele at Mount Carmel West comes from the Grove City area so it seems the hospital could better serve the people in its new location.
