September 29-- Plans are being made to demolish the old Meadows Regional Medical Center building in Vidalia.
Meadows CEO Alan Kent told the Toombs County Hospital Authority Wednesday the demolition will cost less than $500,000 and will get started within the next two months. He said the building including its foundation will be removed. The Lucy Pierson Medical Building, the EMT building and the Ronald McDonald house will be retained, Kent said.
Meanwhile, the Hospital Authority plans to meet again next Wednesday after studying a proposal that the Medical Center re-establish its relationship with the Authority to insure access to an estimated $2 million a year in federal funds for treatment of indigent patients.
