    DO YOU KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT PROVIDENCE, CLOSING THE THERAPY POOL LEAVING ALOT OF PEOPLE HIGH AND DRY. NOBODY SEEMS TO KNOW ALL THE NEWS ABOUT IT. EVEN THE PEOPLE WORKING AT THE POOL ARE UP IN THE AIR ALSO. I THINK THEY ARE JUST GOING TO CLOSE IT AND THAT’S GOING TO BE THAT.

      Hello Bob, I don’t know about the pool….I’m not sure who you would call. Maybe the general number and ask to speak to the public relations office? I dream of this kind of info on a Community page on their website for better relations between the hospital and the immediate neighbors.

      • BOB FLAD says:

        I AGREE, IT WOULD BE NICE, BUT WITH THE HOSPITAL ITS ALL ABOUT MONEY. THERE HAVE BEEN RUMORS ABOUT IT CLOSING FOR 6 MONTHS. THEY WANT TO USE THE SPACE FOR SOME LODGING FOR OUT OF TOWN VISITORS FROM WHAT I HEARD. BUT READING THE WEBSITE THAT THEY WANT TO BUILD IT A BLOCK OR 2 FROM THE HOSPITAL, AND I THINK THAT’S WHAT THE NEIGHBORS DON’T WANT. ITS A BIG COMPANY AND THEY HAVE A LOT OF CLOUT WITH CITY HALL. I EVEN SAW ON JEFFERSON SMITHS FACEBOOK HE POSTED SOMETHING ABOUT THE CLOSING TOO. HE EVEN USES THE POOL, IF YOU HEAR ANYTHING COULD YOU LET ME KNOW.

        Bob, I see that the pool is in the 5050 Hoyt Bldg. based on the 10-year plan we’ve been responding too, that building is scheduled for an expansion in the next few years, but not right away. The Guest Housing you mentioned will be built on the old Moore Lithograph property across from J&T Market. So, that makes me wonder if the rumors are true. Here’s the number for the pool, likely you already have it. Maybe they could clarify the situation.

        And yes, if I hear something, I’ll post here and email you.
