Our new 76-bed full-service community hospital, with 24/7 emergency care, serves the residents of Irmo, Harbison, Chapin, Dutch Fork and surrounding areas. The hospital provides high-quality, state-of-the-art inpatient, medical, surgical and emergency care, along with greater access to a full complement of primary care physicians and specialists. The hospital includes inpatient units, an intensive care unit, a labor and delivery unit and a newborn nursery, six operating rooms, and diagnostic and treatment services including laboratory, imaging, pharmacy and more.
The aesthetically pleasing, pedestrian- and traffic-friendly campus has been developed on 75 acres with an abundance of green space.
Investing in Your Community
The economic impact of Palmetto Health's $125 million investment to build the hospital is significant. Construction of the hospital creates jobs and stimulates economic development as related businesses locate near the hospital, such as physician offices, medical equipment suppliers, hotels and restaurants. More than $2 million in road improvements were completed in November 2011 to enhance the public safety and improve traffic circulation in the area surrounding the campus.
The 76-bed hospital, located at I-26 and Lake Murray Boulevard, was built on 75 acres of gently rolling landscape. The aesthetically pleasing, pedestrian friendly hospital campus was developed with abundant living and green space and a limited number of curb cuts for improved traffic flow. The facility serves the residents of Irmo, Harbison, Chapin, Dutch Fork and surrounding areas who currently are traveling downtown for acute care services.
Bringing the Best to You
The hospital improves access to 24/7 emergency medical services. It includes medical and surgical inpatient units, an intensive care unit, labor and delivery unit and a newborn nursery, six operating rooms, outpatient care and diagnostic and treatment services including laboratory, imaging, pharmacy and more. Some services will continue to be provided by Palmetto Health's downtown facilities, including open heart surgery, trauma care, PET/CT scans, and Gamma Knife radiosurgery. The hospital will stabilize patients and provide rapid specialty care transfer, if required, for some services.
