Rendina Healthcare Real Estate and Carolina Orthopaedics recently celebrated the opening of the new 22,000-sq. ft. Carolina Coast Surgery Center (CCSC) in Murrells Inlet, S.C.

Developed by Rendina, the new facility encompasses a surgery center on the ground floor and Carolina Orthopaedics on the second floor, alongside ATI Physical Therapy. Surgery & Recovery Partners, Greenville, S.C., will manage the facility.

The surgery center offers comprehensive orthopaedic and pain management services, cost-effective outpatient surgery and physical therapy to serve the residents of Horry and Georgetown counties.

"This is an exciting time for our group," states Michael N. Bohan, M.D., managing partner of Carolina Orthopaedics."We have always been incredibly passionate about service to our community and also wholly committed to providing the highest levels of care to our patients.

"This new project promises to achieve that and more in a new centralized location in a cutting-edge facility that will be unlike anything else in the area," Bohan adds.

The new clinic has technologically advanced X-ray imaging and ultrasound equipment and provides alternatives to surgery through physical therapy services offered by Proaxis/ATI Therapy.

The clinic also achieves a goal of Carolina Orthopaedics physicians to offer cost-effective, high-quality outpatient surgery to give patients better control over costs, staffing, scheduling and services.

CCSC, through the leadership of Surgery & Recovery Partners, its medical director and the physician owners, intends to create excellent patient experiences through its advanced preoperative, intraoperative and postoperative opiod-sparing and recovery-accelerating protocols.

New health care facility projects in development or underway include:

  • The third and final phase of a $77 million renovation at Sinai-Grace Hospital at the Detroit Medical Center has been completed with the construction of a new main entrance, lobby, admitting area and radiology department.

    Designed by SmithGroupJJR Inc., the three-year construction project is the largest in northwest Detroit in more than a decade, according to the design firm.

    The new 18,000-sq. ft. lobby, triple its previous size, features a three-piece sculpture entitled "Life Trees," created by the Detroit Design Center. A dedicated admitting area is located directly off the new lobby. The radiology department, also located off the main lobby, is now 24,000 sq. ft., nearly four times larger than before the renovation.

  • Crystal Run Healthcare, Middletown, N.Y., announced the recent opening of its newest office in Newburgh, N.Y., where community patients can access a range of convenient patient-focused health care services in one facility.

    The office houses more than 20 medical and surgical specialties, from primary care and urgent care to cardiology and neurology. Additionally, the facility includes an endoscopy suite, infusion center, and provides full diagnostic testing, including state-of-the-art imaging.

    Crystal Run based the design of the new office on Lean principles to maximize the use of space and patient time with clinical staff.

    Kiosks, rapid check-in, and improved utilization of exam room space reduce wait time for patients, who are discharged directly from the exam room without need for an additional check-out process.

  • Construction has started on the third phase of the Lake Whitney Medical & Professional Campus in St. Lucie West, Fla., for owner Willard Development.

    Miller Construction Co., Fort Lauderdale, Fla., is constructing two mirror-image office buildings within the 15-acre lakefront business campus. Each of the two-story, reinforced concrete and structural steel buildings will provide 21,632-sq. ft. of space with primarily health care tenants. Completion is scheduled for December.

    Hospital Corporation of America has leased one of the two buildings under construction for physician offices and medical specialty services.
