Progress continues at MUSC Health’s newest location in the Williamsburg/Lake City region. MUSC Health recently installed a “Coming Soon” sign that highlights a rendering of the hospital. MUSC Health’s targeted opening date for the new hospital is January 2023.

The facility is being built to replace two existing hospitals located in Williamsburg and Lake City respectively and will become part of the Florence Division of MUSC Health.  This MUSC Health owned hospital will feature 25 licensed beds, full operating and diagnostic services, a 16-bay emergency

department, and the latest capabilities in telehealth. The project represents MUSC’s on-going effort to extend its mission to communities and citizens across the state.
