Beaufort Memorial Hospital

Beaufort Memorial is a not-for-profit hospital comprised of an acute care hospital and regional referral center. Hammes Company Healthcare was first engaged by Beaufort Memorial to provide recommendations for an ambulatory network plan as part of its outpatient strategy aimed at bolstering market share. Hammes delivered an ambulatory implementation plan with five, 10, and 15-year timeframes that incorporated capital costs and financial projections.

Size:

Challenge

In executing its ambulatory plan years later, Beaufort Memorial sought to develop a medical office building (MOB) that would expand ambulatory services in southern Beaufort and Jasper counties and supplement Beaufort Memorial’s existing acute care regional hospital. Beaufort Memorial wanted a partner that could guide the development process and provide funding for the new MOB in order to free up capital for other projects.

Solution

Beaufort Memorial selected Hammes Company Healthcare along with affiliate Hammes Partners to provide ground-up development, financing and project management for the new MOB. Bringing together our comprehensive expertise and local market knowledge, Hammes was able to solve for various challenges facing the project, including challenges associated with wetlands on the desired site and a tight labor market that made qualified talent hard to come by.

Scheduled to open in late 2020, the new multi-tenant facility will provide primary care, OB-GYN, orthopedics, urgent care, cardiology, gastroenterology, neurology, vascular and general surgery, a breast health center, outpatient rehabilitation, laboratory and imaging services, and a full-service cancer center.
