State Hospital South to demolish abandoned buildings

June 6, 2011

BLACKFOOT — This year marks the 125th anniversary of the opening of State Hospital South in Blackfoot, but two hospital buildings built 79 years ago will be demolished this summer.
Buildings F and G, former patient wards located on the north side of the State Hospital campus, were constructed in 1932 and officially opened in 1933. The two-story buildings were occupied as separate men's and women's wards until 1988 when the treatment methods used there became obsolete, said Support Services Director Greg Horton. The wards were replaced by the Patient Treatment Facility used today.
