(RICHMOND) - An eastern Indiana hospital that closed six years ago is headed to a county property tax sale to help settle more than $464,000 in back taxes.

The September 30 tax sale of the old Reid Hospital will help current owner Spring Grove Development Co. pay some of the site's outstanding property taxes.

Wayne County Attorney Ron Cross tells the Palladium-Item the 60-acre site will be offering as a single block to ensure "no one will buy the arguably saleable sections and leave the problematic tracts."

The Richmond hospital moved in 2008 to a new $318 million complex, leaving the old building vacant. Authorities say standing water and crumbling materials inside have left the building unsafe.

A city-county partnership is conducting a site evaluation before considering a demolition plan.
