From primary care doctors to nuclear medicine, the new Tidelands Health Medical Park at The Market Common intends to meet a patients full medical needs under the same roof.
And a vast roof it is.
The three-story complex houses all of the latest imaging technology for cardiology, orthopedic care, and gastroenterology, and the medical experts in those fields to treat patients.
The medical park will also include pain management specialists, and hosts its own physical and occupational therapy center.
Most importantly, the primary doctors treating patients will all work on site.
The examination rooms include touchscreen technology so patients can see their injuries or how an illness is affecting them, to improve communication and treatment.
The medical park will officially open its doors to patients on Sept. 4.
Residents can tour the new facility during a moving day celebration and open house on Aug. 31 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Bruce Bailey, president and CEO of Tidelands Health, told guess and reporters at the ribbon-cutting ceremony Tuesday they are bringing a new era of medical care to Myrtle Beach.
“As we all know, this area continues to grow rapidly, and with that growth comes an increased demand for a whole range of services,” Bailey said.
“Not just roads and water lines, but also health care to keep this community active and well,” Bailey said.
At full capacity, this state-of-the-art medical park will see 140,000 patient visits a year, officials said.
Tidelands’ goal is to bring high quality compassion and care closer to home, said J. Edward Norris III, Tidelands Health board of trustees chair.
Tidelands Health invested $44 million in the construction of the medical park, located on the corner of Farrow Parkway and Crow Lane, and will employ 100 people.
