Demolition of the iconic old QE2 Hospital in nearby Welwyn Garden City began last week.
The former A&E unit at the Howlands site was torn down last Monday (6) and Tuesday to make way for a car park at the £30 million New QEII.
Diggers and workmen arrived at the site on Monday morning reducing the old building to twisted shards of metal and dusty rubble.
A spokesman for the East and North Herts NHS Trust said the old A&E department was being demolished to make way for a new car park.
The new hospital provides a range of services including an urgent care unit – formerly referred to as a local A&E department – outpatients services, X-rays and scans, a breast cancer unit and treatments which do not need an overnight stay.
