Work to Convert Community Hospital into a Wellness Campus Continues, Owner Says
MWN Community Hospital, LLC announced plans to convert the Community Hospital into a wellness campus continues to move forward even as the site will be used as the city’s winter homeless shelter starting next week. The site’s use as the winter shelter through March 31 is not expected to delay the opening of the wellness center.
The hospital was previously owned by the city and operated by MWN. In November 2021, MWN announced the hospital’s closure, and since the losses ($26.65 million) were more than the property value ($17.71 million), the city transferred the site to the MWN in October of this year. Construction to facilitate the wellness center will include work on the Heart Center and the mid-rise tower behind the historic hospital building, which is expected to begin late next year. The facility will have a focus on inpatient behavioral health.
