CUMBERLAND, Md. (AP) — Cumberland officials say demolition of the old Memorial Hospital is expected to begin in the late spring or summer.

City Administrator Jeff Rhodes told the City Council Tuesday that he expects financing for the $3.5 million demolition will be in place by then.

The Times-News of Cumberland reports that demolition will not include the medical buildings, which are on the northern part of the complex’s 8-acre tract, or the parking garages across the street from the hospital. The multi-level parking garage alongside the hospital will come down with the main structure.

Rhodes said all tenants had left the facility.
