Americus-  Demolition crews are making headway in the demolition of Sumter Regional Hospital.

In one section you can see all the way through the hospital to part of the building built in 1977. Big Dog Construction has really ripped into the building over the last two weeks. While the demolition make look chaotic, it's actually an organized mess.

"We're impressed with the job they're doing thus far and how tedious the work is and how organized they are at separating the materials," said David Seagraves, Sumter Regional Hospital President & CEO.

Aluminum and brick from the building will be recycled along with other materials. Sheriff's escorts will help move awnings from the front building that have been sold to another company. Construction on the new hospital will begin in October.
