HDR, a contributor to the Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge, will be working with Roper St. Francis Berkeley Hospital CEO Scott Broome to create a health care facility with a university campus feel. The site will include a hospital and medical office on the 90-acre campus.
“HDR has extensive experience in doing a green field hospital, or transforming a site with nothing on it and building a welcoming facility that puts patients at the center of design,” Broome said in the release.
Roper is building the hospital campus at the intersection of U.S. highways 176 and 17A within the Carnes Crossroads development.
“Roper St. Francis selected HDR for its high level of design creativity, depth in evidence-based practice, strong engineering background and excellent team,” Broome said in the release. “They are forward-thinking and will be able to guide us in creating a health village.”
Roper expects to complete the new facility in 2019. An estimated 285 jobs will result from the project, according to the news release.
“We understand the importance of this new hospital to the community, and are looking forward to working alongside Roper St. Francis to elevate the standard of care in the region, something we’ve been proudly doing since 1961,” Neal Corbett, project principal for HDR, said in the release.
