Palmetto Primary Care Physicians has hired Columbus, Ohio-based Equity Inc. to develop and build a medical campus in the Nexton development, the new 4,500-acre community coming at Interstate-26 and Highway-17A in Summerville, S.C.
Phase one, scheduled to break ground in July, is estimated to cost $135 million and will create more than 1,500 jobs. Equity will break ground with the construction of two 150,000-square-foot medical office buildings, an ambulatory surgery center, a 24-hour urgent care unit and rehabilitation services.
The Palmetto project will also feature a seniors housing community, initially with 170 residences, and a clinically integrated hotel. The hotel and seniors housing projects will break ground at the end of this year.
