MOORE, Oklahoma
Employees and former patients of the Moore Medical Center were among a few hundred people who gathered outside the building Tuesday for a ceremony before a trackhoe started ripping the building apart.

About 200 people worked full-time at the medical center, which is part of the Norman Regional Health System. The buildings were determined by structural engineers and insurance adjusters to be a total loss.

Norman Regional officials say most of the employees at the center are being absorbed into other hospitals in Norman.

Norman Regional officials have not decided what type of replacement facility will be constructed.
