Reasons for starting the Healthcare Facility

Community Need

South Carolina is a well organized rural state with a large number of populations of the elderly and the young. The population is approximated to be over 674, 000 people.

The highway, connecting the locals to the hospital experiences numerous accidents. Therefore, the populous risk loosing their lives on their way to the hospital. Thirdly, there is an increase in patients’ dissatisfaction; the current healthcare in town is overwhelmed with patients number (Wolper, 2004).

With healthy people, operations of daily endeavors are set to be positive; there would be increased satisfaction in the South Carolina state on matters of medication. The hospital will create employment to the people of South Carolina. The Employment created will improve the living standards of the locals.

A large number of professionals; nurses, doctors, and compliant operations specialists come from the rural of South Carolina. This is a fact discovered on a research carried out in different hospitals of South Carolina. With these kinds of employees, there would be quality of services offered to the ambulatory patients. Some of the operations of the healthcare facility will be of immense advantage as there would be some of the operations necessary. In order to bring immeasurable services, this facility should be able to provide the following.

  • 24 hours operation
