Roper St. Francis Building 130,000 SF Building


Leaders from Roper St. Francis held a ceremonial beam signing Thursday for their new, 130,000-square-foot office building in Ladson. Employees who are expected to move into the building in spring 2016 visited the construction site at 8536 Palmetto Commerce Parkway to put their names on a whitewashed support pile.

The $28 million building will house about 600 Roper employees from various departments, including: health care reimbursement, physician billing, coding, food and nutrition services, pre-admission services, the patient contact center, human resources, finance and payroll, materials and property management, information services and professional development.

The office building will sit on 24 acres of land and will include a fitness center, walking trails, video teleconferencing on each floor, a clinical simulation lab and a cafe offering breakfast and lunch.

“This building will have its own culture,” David Dunlap, president and CEO of Roper St. Francis said. “These 600 people will be coming and working and seeing each other every day, whereas now they’ve been scattered about and not really feeling as connected as they could.”
