Going, going, gone!

North Charleston, S.C.

This pile of rubble was Baker Hospital, although not the original Baker Hospital building which is now condos on Colonial Lake.

Baker Hospital became Roper Hospital North. After the hospital closed in 2001, the Charleston Metro Chamber of Commerce moved in but now the sweet spot on the water is going, going, gone. Soon no one will even remember there was a friendly community hospital there, but all over Charleston is a group of people that still greet each other and say, "Hey, didn't you used to work at Old Baker?"
