Piedmont Medical Breaks Ground On York County’s First Off-Campus Emergency Department

FORT MILL, SC — During a groundbreaking ceremony Wednesday, Piedmont Medical Center marked the start of construction on York County’s first stand-alone emergency department.

The new facility, located at 971 Gold Hill Road, will also be the ninth of its kind in South Carolina.

CEO Mark Nosacka, ED Medical Staff Director Karen Jenkins and EMS Chief Eric Morrison were among the roughly 75 people in attendance at the ceremony. Each of them commented on the project and what it means to the community.

“This emergency department represents a big step forward in our commitment to serving the people of Fort Mill,” said Mark Nosacka, chief executive officer of Piedmont Medical Center. “We currently provide 9-1-1 EMS services in Fort Mill and we are very excited to build York County’s first stand-alone emergency department. This facility is a $15.2 million investment in the health of Fort Mill and York County residents and visitors. Our entire staff is committed to providing high quality care as we expand our services throughout the county.”

The facility will cover about 17,340 square feet and feature 24-hour physician coverage, 12 treatment areas, one trauma room, an ambulance dispatch station, and imaging and lab services that include CT, X-ray and ultrasound.

It is scheduled to open in the Fall of 2019.
