GOSHEN – The Orange County Medical Examiner’s morgue and forensic operations has two months to move out of Orange Regional Medical Center, where it has been operating. The hospital needs the space.

As a temporary solution, the county has rented a large mobile facility placed behind the emergency services building to serve for autopsies and as a morgue.

Medical Examiner Dr. Charles Catanese said he can work with those facilities until a more permanent location is identified.
