• Demolition Begins On Former UPMC Braddock Hospital

    PITTSBURGH,None - Demolition began Thursday on the former UPMC Braddock Hospital. Crews began tearing down the back of the hospital along Holland Avenue.

    Protesters were present at the site of the hospital, vowing to continue their fight to save the building. Many of the protesters said they are furious over the fact that no one gave the building a chance to be reused.

    "$30,000 raised in a grant was to be used to do a study on the building to see how it could be used. Onorato and Logan said, 'We don't have time. We're gonna lose money. We don't have time to take one month for the study.' And what happens? Six, seven months have passed and no study has ever been done," said Tony Buba.

    Budget cuts forced UPMC to close its Braddock location in January.
