May 9, 2014 | Around Town
Roper St. Francis has unveiled its plans for a new medical office building to be built on their 66-acre property here at Carnes Crossroads! The 60,000-sq. ft. building will house medical offices and outpatient services — including diagnostic imaging, urgent care and oncology services — to serve residents in our growing area.
“Roper St. Francis intends on meeting the healthcare needs of our neighbors,” said Roper St. Francis President and CEO David Dunlap in an official announcement. “We’ve seen an influx of new residents and construction in Berkeley County, and it’s time for us to move forward in fulfilling the healthcare needs of the entire county. We are excited about growing in an area that so many people choose to call home.”
Roper St. Francis is the Lowcountry’s only private, not-for-profit healthcare provider, comprising more than 90 facilities and services in seven counties. Its medical office building at Carnes Crossroads is estimated to cost $30 million and create several hundred jobs. The facility is expected to be completed by the end of 2015. It will be located on the same site, near the intersection of Highways 176 and 17A, where Roper has plans to eventually build a 50-bed hospital as well.
