Peoria may land its first full-service hospital nearly a decade after construction of one began, ran out of money and stood as a partially built skeletal framework for years.
Demolition of the unbuilt eyesore began in late October, and a groundbreaking on the same site now is slated in April for the Peoria Regional Hospital.
The city announced Wednesday that the hospital would open near Lake Pleasant Parkway and Jomax Road in north Peoria in late 2022. It’s expected to create 150 jobs.
