CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — As local leaders look for answers to the city's homelessness questions, could a solution be sitting right under their noses?

A professor from Del Mar College thinks the old Spohn Memorial Hospital can be turned into a center for the homeless.

The hospital closed two years ago after damage from Hurricane Harvey.

Professor Dean Flinn says the property is big enough for a rehab hospital, housing and skills training. But, is idea feasible financially?

That’s one of the questions we’ll ask about today.

We’ll share what we learn, this evening on KRIS 6 News.

The county hospital district put the building up for sale nearly a year ago with a $4 million price tag.
