Key industries and Business Development

Self Regional Healthcare (SRHC) features cancer, heart, and vascular centers, as well as a women’s center and neonatal intensive-care unit. The healthcare facility also offers gastrointestinal and orthopedic services, as well as neurosurgery and neurology. Multimillion-dollar renovations were completed in June 2015, and the facility now features a lobby area comprising a 4,000-square-foot atrium, a modernized cafeteria with flexible space, expanded laboratory facilities, and an enhanced cancer-treatment facility.

Although these upgrades did not result in the creation of new jobs, the modernized and efficient healthcare facility is anticipated to attract more patients from surrounding areas, as well as new residents.
