From individual providers, outpatient surgery centers and full-service hospitals to physical therapy clinics and fitness studios, Nexton’s residents and visitors have access to a wide range of services designed to foster physical, mental and emotional wellbeing.

“Wellness is a cornerstone of the Nexton brand,” said Cassie Cataline, director of marketing for Nexton. “Services and caregivers combine at Nexton to provide a variety of medical options. The community was literally designed to promote a healthy lifestyle.”

Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) owns 40 acres in Nexton for its planned 128-bed hospital and medical campus, designed to better serve its existing patient base. Later this year, Palmetto Primary Care Physicians plans to open its Nexton Medical Building, a 100,000-square-foot complex with primary care doctors and a wide array of specialists. Additionally, just five miles from Nexton, the 116,000-square-foot Roper St. Francis Berkeley Hospital offers a 24-hour emergency room, imaging department, lab, birthing suites and an intensive-care unit.

Multiple hotels are located in close proximity to the surgery center, providing convenient accommodations for patients’ family members.

Directly adjacent to Nexton, regional hospital system Trident Health offers Brighton Park ER, a freestanding urgent care. The 10,800-square foot facility will provide 24-hour emergency care and will additionally offer a full lab with imaging services and telehealth capabilities.

The recent expansion of the Palmetto Heroes Program, a state initiative offering qualified homebuyers in select career fields low interest rates and down payment assistance, to include front-line medical professionals will allow those who work or live near Nexton the opportunity of home ownership. This includes employees providing emergency medical services and licensed medical professionals, among other professions.
