Roper St. Francis Medical Campus to Open
October 12, 2018 | Around Town
Roper St. Francis, the Charleston region’s only private, not-for-profit hospital system, is getting ready to open the medical office building, the first component of its 90-acre campus at Carnes Crossroads. A “Community Day” is planned for Friday, November 30, offering a chance for visitors to get a first peek at the newest healthcare resource in our community.
The facility is adjacent to Roper St. Francis Berkeley Hospital, Berkeley County’s first full-service hospital, which is under construction and scheduled to open next summer. The 50-bed community hospital will include an emergency department, maternity and surgical services, radiology and imaging services and more.
The Roper campus is an important component of our master planned community, offering residents here and from across the region convenient access to comprehensive medical services right in their backyard. There is space on the campus for additional facilities to be added as the needs of the greater community evolve.
“We’re honored that Roper St. Francis — one of the most respected medical providers in the region — chose Carnes Crossroads as the location for their expansion into Berkeley County,” says Matt Sloan, President of the Daniel Island Company, the master developer for Carnes Crossroads. “Convenient access to quality healthcare is something every thoughtfully planned community needs, and we are proud that Carnes Crossroads is becoming a center for medical services for our area.”
With essential services like a school, church, medical services – and soon, a community hospital – Carnes Crossroads has a strong foundation for becoming a convenient new center in Berkeley County where people can work, live, learn and play.
