VICKSBURG, Miss. — A vacant hospital in Mississippi is up for sale.

The Vicksburg Post reports the former Parkview Hospital is on the market for $2.1 million.

The seven-story building near downtown Vicksburg has been empty since 2002.

Kenneth Carriero, the listing broker, says the structure could be used as a skilled nursing and assisted living facility or as some sort of medical college. He says that if zoning officials agree, it could be used for apartments.

It was built as Mercy Hospital in 1957 and renamed Parkview in the 1990s after being bought by a Tennessee company. That company was later acquired by another company based in Texas.

A new hospital opened in Vicksburg in 2002.
