ELLWOOD CITY, Pa.-- The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers wants to know if it can use and reopen the shuttered Elwood City Medical Center in Lawrence County.

Local State Representative Aaron Bernstine and Ellwood City leaders are supporting the proposal as a way to help manage the COVID-19 epidemic locally.

The Corp of Engineers is assessing the sight and looking at ways to adapt the location and looking for equipment.

The Pennsylvania Department of Health ordered the hospital about few months ago after the owner failed to keep up to state requirements.
