Progress Preview: Construction begins on Roper St. Francis Berkeley Hospital expansion
The effort falls in line with the Roper St. Francis Healthcare Strategic Plan 2030 to expand access to convenient, high-quality medical care throughout the Charleston region over the next decade.
Less than four years after welcoming its first patients, Roper St. Francis Berkeley Hospital in Summerville has embarked on a construction plan to double in size, in keeping with the growing Lowcountry community.
The facility at 100 Callen Blvd. opened in 2019, offering a full-service hospital in Berkeley County for the first time in 45 years.
Late this spring, the project got underway to expand Roper St. Francis Berkeley Hospital from 50 to 100 beds and to add 200,000 sqft of new or renovated space to the existing 116,000-sqft facility.
Among the hospital’s current full complement of services are:
- A 24-hour emergency department
- Imaging and lab services
- An intensive-care unit
The hospital features 16 rooms for mothers and newborn babies, along with four operating rooms.
The next stage of the project will include an official groundbreaking, followed by the pouring of the foundations for the new buildings.
