Demolition begins at the former Hartselle Medical Center site on Sparkman Street. Huntsville Hospital President Kelli Powers has said once the project is complete, the property will be landscaped, but no plans for future use have yet been decided. Originally built in 1953, the hospital was closed in 2012 by Capella Healthcare prior to being sold to Huntsville Hospital Health System, according to a press release.
