CHESTERFIELD, S.C. – For more than 15 years, CareSouth Carolina has served in the Chesterfield community and now the organization is set to open a new 17,000-square foot state-of-the-art facility illustrating its commitment to the community for the long-term.
The new facility, which will be located at 204 Perry Wiley Way, more than quadruples CareSouth Carolina’s capacity to provide services to Chesterfield county and its surrounding areas.
“CareSouth Carolina has been invested in the Chesterfield community for over 15 years,”CareSouth Carolina CEO Ann Lewis said. “This has been a very long time in the making. We have outgrown our current location and this new facility will definitely fix the space problem and provide much needed expanded services to the area.”
In addition to the services provided at the current location, the new facility will provide space for additional primary care providers, dental services, behavioral health counseling, x-ray, lab, ultrasound, pharmacy with a drive thru and a community room for various health and community events.
CareSouth Carolina originally opened its site at 500 West Boulevard in 2005. Since then, the organization has focused on providing quality care that makes a difference in the Chesterfield community.
Currently, the site employs more than 16 medical professionals, including four providers: Christina Biester, M.D.; Sarah Knight, ANP-BC; Ryann Charisse Lee, APRN; and Jack W. Rhyne, LISW.
“Excitement is definitely mounting as the new building for our Chesterfield office nears completion,” Lewis said. “The staff is looking forward to more efficient space, less crowded patient and staff areas, expanded parking, and a large community room for education and meeting needs.”
