HERMISTON - A goodbye ceremony for the old Hermiston hospital will be held Saturday from 10 a.m. to noon, on the corner of Southwest Seventh Street and Orchard Avenue.

The property was acquired by the Hermiston School District and is in the process of being demolished to make way for the building of a new West Park Elementary School.

"We are delighted to be working with our community partners to fulfill the community's long-term vision of replacing the old hospital building with a state-of-the-art educational facility," Superintendent Fred Maiocco said.

At 10:30 a.m., Maiocco will welcome guests. People can learn about plans for the new school. Refreshments will be served.
