The Florence Presbyterian Community broke ground July 23rd on a major expansion of its Health Center. The 14,489 sq. foot addition will include 25 private, Medicare-certified rooms, an advanced therapy center and updated dining venue. Upon completion in Fall 2015, the Florence Health Center will accommodate 44 total residents requiring rehabilitative services or long term nursing care. Older adults throughout the Pee Dee recovering from an accident, illness or surgery will be able to use their Medicare Part A benefits for post-acute care at the Florence Presbyterian Community Health Center. “Our mission, ‘to enrich the quality of life for seniors of all faiths, is lived out through important expansions such as these,” said Kathy Ligon, President of PCSC. “Enhancing our Health Care centers enables our ministry to better serve our current residents while also accommodating a larger number of people who can benefit from the compassionate, Christian care that Presbyterian Communities of South Carolina (PCSC) offers.”
