The Brooks-TLC Hospital System wants to drum up developers' interest in the future reuse of Brooks Memorial Hospital in Dunkirk.
The hospital system has sent an "expression of interest" to more than 80 developers locally and outside the region, including in Canada. It's a step toward a more formal request for proposals for the property that will be issued later.
Brooks-TLC is considering ideas for reuse of the current hospital, once it is replaced by a new hospital in Fredonia that has yet to be built. Plans call for construction of the new hospital to start this spring.
