Demolitions planned at St. Vincent's

By Roger Bull, Florida Times-Union

There’s some major demolition about to take place at St. Vincent’s HealthCare in Riverside. Seton Hall and Bryan Auditorium will be torn down. The hospital doesn’t have plans for the space yet, so the area will go green until there is one.

Seton Hall dates back to 1952 and was the nursing school and dorm until 1973 when the school closed. Since then it’s served other purposes, but Kyle Sieg, spokesman for St. Vincent’s, said time has taken its toll on the building and it was time to take it down.

Bryan Auditorium opened in 1982 and because it’s so connected to Seton, it’s coming down, too.

Sieg said the demolition will be done brick by brick to avoid dust and vibration. Brasfield & Gorrie has the $978,000 contract for the 69,417-square-foot demolition.
