Summerville Medical Center is currently building a 30 bed expansion and renovation project totaling $53 million. This is first step in the women’s and children’s consolidation project.The project is expected to be complete in late 2018. The project marks the largest in the hospital’s history.
Population growth in the region is creating demands on the health care industry, Doug Warren, chairman of Trident Health’s board of trustees and director of Dorchester County Emergency Medical Services said in a news release. Warren said the hospital’s leaders are working to handle the current demand as well as preparing for at least the next three years. When the expansion and renovation project is complete, labor and delivery services from Trident Medical Center in North Charleston will move to a new women’s pavilion at Summerville Medical. The Trident Health hospitals, both of which are owned by Hospital Corp of America are located about six miles apart.
