The Sacred Heart Hospital building on Chicago’s West Side has been sold and may be demolished by a group that sets up training for graduates of foreign medical schools.

APGME Corp. bought the building at 3240 W. Franklin Blvd. and some adjoining lots for $250,000, APGME president Sameer Suhail told chicagobusiness.com.

Suhail said APGME is considering offering primary care, outpatient services or an oncology center on the property. He said the company is prepared to spend between $20 million and $30 million.
