BRISTOL - Bristol Hospital has agreed to sell two downtown buildings to a New York-based development company that will provide temporary housing and job placement services to veterans.
“It’s exciting to do something more for veterans,” Bristol Hospital President and CEO Kurt Barwis said, adding that hospital officials have talked extensively about what more could be done for veterans in the area.
Barwis said hospital officials are “still on the fence” about whether they want to invest and partner with Lockwood Development Partners, LLC., which has agreed to buy the Funck Building, at 238 Main St., and the Eagle Building, at 222 Main St., for just over $1 million.
