Work on the new Roper St. Francis Hospital being built on Highway 17 North in Carolina Park across from Charleston National is advancing fast. Completion is expected for later this year. This 200,000 sq. ft. facility built on 78 acres of land will have 85 inpatient beds, 24-hour emergency, inpatient and outpatient surgery, womens' clinic, imaging, laboratory and pharmacy.
Also, the new wing for East Cooper Hospital is being finished on Mathis Ferry and Von Kolnitz. This wing will more than double the size of their current facility and includes 130 private patient rooms, 10 neonatal nursery beds, expanded medical units and other technological advances.
