The New Rockford City Hospital was built in 1939 and served the New Rockford area for over 50 years. Due to asbestos contamination and dilapidation, the Hospital was closed and condemned. The City of New Rockford recently received a grant from the Environmental Protection Agency to assist in the asbestos removal and demolition of the Hospital. The area will eventually be redeveloped for multi-family housing.
The Hospital demolition will take place in the summer and fall of 2013. Please stay tuned for updates and notices on the project. For more information, please call Sarah Smith Warren at the New Rockford Area Betterment Corporation at (701) 947-2205.
