The two-story, $8 million facility will be connected to Summerville Medical Center and will give patients access to robotic surgery, bariatric surgery, MRI, obstetric services and a maternal fetal telemedicine program.
A groundbreaking event will be held at 10 a.m. June 25.
Summerville Medical Center has added many specialty services in recent years, according to CEO Lisa Valentine.
“That growth will continue as we build this important addition to our medical campus. This venture gives our patients closer choices and additional convenience when it comes to their health care options,” Valentine said in a statement.
The project is currently in the pre-leasing stage and several medical practices have shown “strong interest in the project,” according to Terry Cunningham, vice president of operations.
Nashville, Tenn.-based Hospital Corp. of America, the parent company of Summerville Medical Center, will own the building, and Lee & Associates Charleston will oversee leasing. Barton Malow will develop the construction project, which is expected to be complete in the spring of 2015, according to the news release.
