Chicora Life Center Announced
Charleston County Officials recently announced the plans to develop a one-stop shop for various key services in the medical realm including government, social and care facilities.
The Life Center will be located in what used to be the Charleston Naval hospital at 3600 Rivers Ave. in North Charleston. The renovation of the former hospital is expected to jump start re-development in the surrounding area. The City of North Charleston mentioned the possibility of everything from a grocery store to a fitness club or even extensive walking and biking trails, and a community recreation center. All great ideas and something to work towards as the Life Center becomes a reality.
Some of the Agencies and services that have already signed leases for the Life Center include:
- Charleston County Vital Records
- Charleston County Coroner’s Office
- S.C. Department of Alcohol and Other Drugs Abuse Services*
- S.C. DHEC*
- Fetter Health Care Network, Inc.
- A number of other tenants are expected to be finalized shortly.
