Congrats to the Miles City Housing Authority and Melissa on getting $1,000,000 in grant money toward this project.

It would be nice to see similar effort and dedication for grants elsewhere in the city.

Keep up the good work Melissa!

That is great. However, the person that sold the hospital for a dollar, to a crook, should be found and hung from the nearest Cotton Wood tree for what he and the HRH did to that hospital, this town and our tax paying dollars. It is an absolute disgrace.

For those of us who worked at the old Holy Rosary, the progressive deterioration and vandalism of the buildings has been a painful experience to observe. This complex was once the focal point of regional medical care. Congratulations to Melissa for her tenacity in pursuing the grants necessary to resurrect a Miles City institution that began with the Milwaukee Railroad's relationship with the Presentation Sisters in 1910. Those of us who still live and work in the neighborhood look forward to the process of restoration.

The CEO at the time was Ray Gibbons. He's in Choteau now. The decision to sell for $1.00 was made by the board and thier lawyers. The buyer had actually completed a rehab/conversion in Lewsitown of another old hospital or school building. Unfortunately, the developer developed a gambling problem and wasted away the investors money and money from stripping and salvaging the high rise. Last time I heard he was on his death bed in a nursing home with liver, lung and heart problems.
