Charleston, SC (May 28, 2020) – Summerville Medical Center is excited to announce Phase 1 of the hospital’s 3rd floor medical/surgical unit renovation is complete and open for patients. This project is part of a larger $4.4 million inpatient unit renovation that kicked off in 2019.
The project renovates the hospital’s patient rooms, lobby and nurses’ stations in the 2nd floor medical/surgical unit, 3rd floor medical/surgical unit, and Intensive Care Unit (ICU).
Phase 1 of the 45-bed 3rd floor renovation is complete and reopened this week for patient care. The 2nd floor renovation was completed in 2019.
“We are thrilled for the Phase 1 of this project to be complete,” said Michelle Jones, Director of the 3rd floor medical/surgical unit. “The unit was designed with our patients and their comfort in mind. We transformed the unit with soothing wall colors, new flooring, 55” Apple TVs, Lowcountry-focused artwork, and more to make our patients feel comfortable and at home while in our care.”
The inpatient renovation is part of a $100 million investment Summerville Medical Center is making into our community to ensure they receive excellent care close to home. The entire project is expected to be completed by the end of 2020.
