Shuttered Indiana hospital heads to tax sale

RICHMOND, Ind. — An eastern Indiana hospital that closed six years ago is headed to a county property tax sale to help settle more than $464,000 in back taxes.

The Sept. 30 tax sale of the old Reid Hospital in Richmond will help current owner Spring Grove Development Co. pay some of the site's outstanding property taxes.

Wayne County Attorney Ron Cross tells the Palladium-Item (http://pinews.co/1z7njGR ) the 60-acre site will be offering as a single block to ensure no one just buy parts of the property.

The Richmond hospital moved in 2008 to a new $318 million complex, leaving the old building vacant. Authorities say standing water and crumbling materials inside have left the building unsafe.

A city-county partnership is conducting a site evaluation before considering a demolition plan.
