OAKLAND, CA -- The 11-story hospital building at the former Oak Knoll U.S. Naval Medical Center in Oakland was imploded last week.The hospital had stood since 1968 and was the last of over 100 former Navy buildings that were demolished over the past two years at the base that closed in 1996.
Lead and asbestos materials were removed from the hospital and all buildings during an earlier work phase, and the concrete and steel are being recycled. Earlier this year, the warehouse and bachelor enlisted quarters were demolished.
