Every time I drive through Kerrville, I just can't believe they are tearing down the hospital brick by brick. The center of town looks like a war zone. The building is (was a) perfectly good hospital. No structural defects, it was attractive, centrally located ... And, the city in all their infinite wisdom decided to tear it down .... piece by piece .... and take it where? To the landfill .... a huge multi-level building is filling up our landfill. Why ... so they can build a park. A park in the middle of town so that the homeless that hang out at Louise Hays park can relocate to the MIDDLE of town. Someone has wayyyy to much power and not much savey?

Really!!? Where will the new hospital be? My Grandma, when she was alive, volunteered there She took us to meet all her friends there when we were visiting one summer. When did Kerrville get so many homeless that they need a park in the middle of town to live?

Didn't the Peterson Regional Medical Center (south of the river) replace the downtown hospital?

Yes, and Peterson is very nice. I was told they are taking the old hospital down slowly as they are trying to re-use 80% of it, so it sounds like it won't go into land fill, and if they had of bombed it instead, it probably would've.

Default What

I have lived in Kerrville yea i was also upset that they had torn down the hospital that hospital ment alot to me. The new park wont have homeless people in it like Louis Hays Park. In all of my years of living there I hardly saw any homeless people! The new hospital though is amazing but I wish they would of left the old one.
