Crews finish demolishing old Earl K. Long Hospital

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Pieces of concrete, steel and wood are all that's left of the old Earl K. Long Hospital in Baton Rouge.

Crews tore down the last remaining parts this week.

Several community groups are looking at options to replace the medical complex.

State Sen. Sharon Weston Broome, D-Baton Rouge, is part of the effort. She said the best ideas center on a mixed-use development.

Right now, the East Baton Rouge Housing Authority has control of the site.
