Crews begin demolishing landmark St. James Hospital in Chicago Heights

St. James Hospital in Chicago Heights is coming down. In a matter of weeks, the southeast corner at the intersection of U.S. 1 and U.S. 30 will be empty. The 108-year-old institution will be gone from its Chicago Heights location forever, after being folded into a new Franciscan Health operation at Olympia Fields.
