Roper St. Francis Healthcare will make an unprecedented investment in Lowcountry patients by building a new Roper Hospital Medical Campus in North Charleston.
The campus will occupy 27-acres near Interstates 26 and 526 and be easily accessible for patients living in Berkeley, Charleston or Dorchester counties. The $1 billion project will be one of the largest, most advanced healthcare construction projects on the East Coast and will meet the healthcare needs of one of the fastest growing areas in the country.
“This new medical campus will be a paradigm for providing healthcare, whether that’s complex surgeries in a hospital or an annual checkup in an outpatient office,” said Dr. Jeffrey DiLisi, president and chief executive officer of Roper St. Francis Healthcare. “We made the bold decision one year ago to move Roper Hospital, and I’m grateful to our North Charleston partners for breathing life into this dream. This new campus will ensure our ability to continue delivering the quality care that’s been the hallmark of our brand for generations.”
The new Roper Hospital Medical Campus is expected to include a full-service acute care hospital with a 24-hour Emergency Room. The campus also will have a Medical Office Building where a vast array of outpatient and specialty care will be provided. Roper St. Francis Healthcare has secured six premium real estate parcels off Mall Drive near North Charleston City Hall to build the campus.
