Nexton's Promise of a Healthy Community Takes Shape

SUMMERVILLE, SC - Palmetto Primary Care Physicians and Equity Inc. have announced their intent to develop a state of the art medical campus at Nexton. When fully built out, the 35-acre PPCP campus will provide 1,500 jobs; 75% will be newly created.

Citing its physician-led approach to healthcare reform, PPCP says the campus will combine the latest developments in office, diagnostics, telemedicine and minimally invasive ambulatory care.

Phase one of the project will create two 150,000-square-foot medical office buildings, an ambulatory surgery center, a 23-hour urgent care unit, rehabilitation services and other health facilities.

Future phases may include cancer treatment, hospice services, assisted-living residences and medical lodging.

Company officials note that the medical campus will benefit from Nexton's GigaFi, South Carolina?s first community-wide gigabit network. The high-speed Internet will allow for overall efficiency on the campus, including faster download of CAT scans and x-rays and easier transfer of files using electronic health records (EHR) system.
