The implosion is scheduled for 2PM local time.
The 220-foot-high smokestack is the only structure that will be imploded during the first phase of demolition at the hospital, which closed in 1996. Crews are using trucks to tear down 18 other structures, including staff residences, kitchens and dining halls, treatment facilities and a morgue.
National Salvage & Service Corp is the demolition contractor.
