If you’ve been near 9th & Goliad lately, you’ve probably seen activity going on at the old Hall-Bennett Hospital in Big Spring. That’s because Big Spring native Brint Ryan purchased the property a few months ago with plans to renovate it into an office building.
Project Manager Kris Ryan told KBest News that asbestos abatement has been taking place over the last couple of weeks. The west side of the abandoned hospital building, which was badly damaged by fire a few years ago, was demolished yesterday. The east side of the historical building, which bears the sign “Big Spring Hospital Corp” will undergo a substantial renovation that will include modern day requirements while preserving the historical integrity of the building that holds memories for so many.
The target date of completion is not yet known, but KBest will provide updates on the project as they are made available.
