CareSouth Carolina to expand in Society Hill
SOCIETY HILL – CareSouth Carolina announced Thursday evening the addition of a new facility in Society Hill.
During the CSC Board Meeting at Society Hill’s Town Hall, a resolution was presented and agreement signed to allow CareSouth Carolina to move into the vacant St. David’s Academy building.
The facility will be used for administrative offices and will free up space in other CareSouth Carolina locations to provide a more efficient patient experience.
“I’m really excited in what has culminated in our ability to expand and grow as an organization,” CareSouth Carolina CEO Ann Lewis said. “We call it a purchase, but the purchase is almost a token amount and in reality, the town of Society Hill and the Darlington County School District have essentially donated it to us. We are in desperate need of more space, and it means we’ll be able to centralize many of our administrative services here in Society Hill.”
The announcement comes on the heels of CareSouth Carolina’s mortgage burning, celebrating the final payment of the mortgage for the Rosa Lee Gerald Center in Society Hill.
“As I think about the future and about driving down Main Street in Society Hill, seeing the legacy of St. David’s Academy and seeing CareSouth Carolina’s name with that facility, that’s going to be a real thrill and it’s going to mean a lot too many different people,” Lewis said.
Society Hill Mayor Tommy Bradshaw said he was excited to see what the future holds with CareSouth Carolina and the healthcare provided in Society Hill.
“It’s a win-win situation,” Bradshaw said. “This is going to provide more administrative space for CareSouth Carolina and we’re excited to see them expanding here in Society Hill where it all started. The town is kind of the geographic center of where they provide services, so it makes a lot of sense. It’s going to give them a chance to develop a campus here in Society Hill.”
