Land is being cleared for construction of a medical office building that will be part of Bon Secours St. Francis Health System’s Millennium campus off I-85 and Laurens Road.

The building is being developed by DASCO, which will lease offices to physicians, Mary Hassett, vice president of strategic initiatives for St. Francis, told the Greenville News today. It should be completed by next July, she said.

Development of an acute care hospital on the 60-acre St. Francis site, meanwhile, is contingent on the state Department of Health and Environmental Control approving a certificate of need for its construction, she said.

St. Francis plans to make that application in the coming weeks, she said. A ruling typically takes about six months.

“We need the capacity,” Hassett said. “We’re just full up at both hospitals on a continual basis.”

Construction on the hospital would take about two years and begin as soon as the certificate of need is granted, she said.
