Virtua to demolish old Voorhees hospital

    Six months from now, an old Virtual Health hospital site will be flat and grassy.

    Virtua will demolish its old Voorhees facility, the Gloucester County Times reports, and has no plans in the works for reusing it.
    A new facility opened about a year ago on Route 73, leaving the Voorhees facility and its smaller buildings behind. A community meeting is planned for tonight at 7 p.m. at the Barry Brown Health Education Center.

    The demolition is expected to take six months.
