MOORE, Oklahoma -

Employees of a medical center destroyed by the EF5 tornado in Moore on May 20 will gather Tuesday to say goodbye to the building before it's demolished.

The tornado killed 24 people and caused such severe structural damage to the 8-year-old Moore Medical Center that the health care complex could not be salvaged. Fortunately, not one of the more than 400 patients and employees was seriously hurt during the storm.

At 9 a.m. Tuesday, demolition crews will take down the remains of the building. Before that, there will be a remembrance ceremony for employees. The heroic actions of the workers who raced to protect patients will also be honored.

The ceremony will take place in the parking lot between the medical center and the Warren Theatre along Telephone Road.

The demolition of the medical center is expected to take about three weeks.
