Peoria Regional Medical Center was meant to be Peoria’s first hospital, but its unfinished skeletal framework has stood empty for nearly a decade. A new owner will demolish the eyesore in affluent north Peoria in October — building a medical campus in its place, according to the city.
Work on the hospital building, which is on seven acres near Lake Pleasant Parkway and Jomax Road, stopped less than a year after it broke ground.
City officials pushed to demolish the structure, but the owner filed bankruptcy and stalled those plans. The property first found a buyer in bankruptcy court in late 2018, but the sale dragged on.
