An abandoned factory and longtime vacant property on the east side of Greenwood has been renewed.
Offices and cubicles have been constructed for 360 employees of Franciscan St. Francis Health. Classrooms and training labs will serve 100 students daily.
The former home of Alpine Electronics has been reborn as the administrative nerve center for Franciscan St. Francis Health. Hospital officials have renovated the building, creating workspace for departments such as billing, marketing and scheduling.
The addition to the Greenwood business community will help strengthen a developing section of the city and ideally serve as a spark for other businesses in that area, said Christian Maslowski, executive director of the Greater Greenwood Chamber of Commerce.
