MURRAY - After 44 years as a Murray City landmark, the Cottonwood Hospital is no more. Doctors and staff gathered at the site Tuesday afternoon to help make way for the new expanded TOSH, or The Orthopedic Specialty Hospital campus.
Nearly 100 employees helped pull down the last remnants of an exterior wall of the hospital.
TOSH administrator Bryan Johnson says it's the perfect time to expand. "The need for growing that orthopedic specialty hospital in this area is significant," he said.
Cottonwood Hospital closed in 2007 when the Intermountain Medical Center opened just six blocks away at 5300 South and State Street.
A number of employees of Cottonwood Hospital transferred to TOSH when the hospital closed.
