The Powdersville Medical Center opens Jan. 29 on 34 acres at the corner of Highway 81 and McNeely Road.
A collaboration of Baptist Easley and Greenville Hospital System University Medical Center, the facility is anchored by an MD360 urgent-care center. The 32,500-square-foot facility also houses The Steadman Hawkins Clinic of the Carolinas, Proaxis Therapy and specialty surgeons from GHS.
“For 10 years we have had plans to expand our health care services in Powdersville,” said Baptist Easley CEO Roddey E. Gettys III in a news release. “The area has long been under-served for medical services. Now community residents will be able to get a full array of services close to home.”
Baptist Easley is a 50-50 joint venture between GHS and Palmetto Health of Columbia.
Powdersville Medical Center will employ 40 people.
The MD360 Convenient Care will provide walk-in and urgent-care services seven days a week. Additionally, Steadman Hawkins Clinic of the Carolinas and Proaxis Therapy provide orthopaedic and physical therapy services. Surgical specialists of GHS University Medical Group Department of Surgery staff an 11-room suite. Diagnostic X-ray and laboratory services are on site, as well as a 16-slice CT scanner operated by Baptist Easley Hospital. The Baptist Easley’s Sleep Lab also relocated to the new center and doubled in size. Additionally, the center offers a community room for health education events and space for use by others in the Powdersville community.
JMD Architects Inc., in collaboration with Batson Architects Inc., both of Greenville, designed the center. Triangle Construction, also of Greenville, was the general contractor.
