Grace Jones, a spokeswoman for the hospital, said the acquisition of the real estate is part of the hospital’s long term plans for growth and expansion, but at this time they are still evaluating what to do with the it.

“We’re still determining what we will use that property for,” she said.

A message was also left with Progressive Printers.
