After a decade of legal battles between Carolina’s Healthcare, Novant Health, and Peidmont Medical, a judge has just given final approval to Peidmont Medical Center to build Fort Mill’s first official hospital.
The new, $120 million, 100-bed facility will be located on the corner of Highway 160 W and Highway 21 in Fort Mill, S.C.
“We celebrate today with the community of Fort Mill as they are one step closer to getting the high-quality hospital that they have deserved for years,” said Bill Masterton, chief executive officer of Piedmont Medical Center. “Fort Mill Medical Center will deliver trusted health care services in the heart of town as we extend the quality programs that residents have come to expect from Piedmont Medical Center.”
Once it’s completed, the Fort Mill Medical Center will include; a 24-hour emergency room, comprehensive women’s health services, advanced cardiac services, and a full intensive care unit.
The new hospital is now expected to create at least 400 jobs and bring in significant tax revenue for the town of For Mill, including an estimated $2.8 million to the Fort Mill School District, more than $500,000 to the Town of Fort Mill and more than $700,000 to the county on an annual basis.
