Former Hospital May Be Converted To Apartments

The former hospital in Stanley might be converted into apartments to help alleviate a housing crunch in the oil patch city.

STANLEY, N.D. (AP) - The former hospital in Stanley might be

converted into apartments to help alleviate a housing crunch in the

oil patch city.

Lutheran Social Services Housing has an option to buy the

hospital from a private owner to convert it into a 16-unit

apartment complex.

Jessica Thomasson, director of LSS Housing in Fargo, says the

agency hopes to launch the project later this year but the deciding

factor will be the financing.

Thomasson says the building would have units of different sizes

and prices to accommodate a range of family sizes and incomes.

The hospital closed in 2002 when a new facility opened.
