Brooksville Regional hospital had seen its day pass.
Left to rot as an eyesore, Metro-Bay took a scalpel to the 128K sq ft structure sitting on 14 acres, carving out 19,000 sq ft and dividing the building into the 60K sq Ft Oaks Town Centre and the 49K sq ft Grande Independent Living Facility. The Grande, took over the hospitals 3 story wing, integrating the existing commercial kitchen and cafeteria.
The development still has the potential to sell out-lots to further improve the bottom line. The original plan to do storefronts in the Oaks Town Centre was shelved with the 2009 market crash. The space was adapted to expand elder care opportunities.
