The NCH Healthcare System has purchased the Naples Daily News building in North Naples, according to a news release from the health care system.

The sale of the 186,000 square-feet building closed on Tuesday. The news release did not disclose the amount of the sale. According to the Collier County Property Appraiser, the property has an assessed value of $ 25,090,116.

The building, built in 2009, is located a couple of blocks west of the NCH North Naples Hospital campus. The property is located on an 18-acre lot.

Current plans include the relocation of some of NCH’s administrative offices, including accounting, billing, IT. business office, supply chain, system warehousing among others. Those officers are currently located at 2157 Pine Ridge Road.

The hospital system’s human resources, marketing and other non-clinical support services will also move to the new building.

The move is expected to be complete in early spring of next year, according to the release.

It’s unclear what will happen to the operations of the Naples Daily News at this time. We are still waiting to hear back from them about what the sale means for the newspaper.

The daily newspaper, owned by Gannett, moved printing operations to Sarasota last December, eliminating close to 50 full- and part-time jobs.

The Naples Daily News and The News-Press, also owned by Gannett, have since been printed at the Sarasota Herald-Tribune.
