Demolition work on Elgin's old Sherman Hospital began Monday.

The nearly century-old hospital building and adjacent parking deck are both coming down.

The work is expected to be completed this fall and is not expected to cause any street closures in the area.

Sherman Hospital was replaced by a new facility in Elgin in 2009.
