Lutheran Community Services has bought the former Atlantic Women's Medical Services building on Baynard Boulevard.

"It has a bit of history. Kermit Gosnell was one of the doctors practicing there," said spokeswoman Cher Frampton.

Gosnell was convicted of killing babies born alive at the clinic. Frampton says the building is getting a total makeover.

"We're taking this negative and turning it into a positive for the community there. We'll be able to provide emergency food, housing assistance, clothing," she said.

Frampton says they plan to bless the building. A clean-up day is set for March 28. They hope to move in this fall.
