D ear friends, Happy Spring! What a glorious time to be in the Lowcountry—a season of excitement and growth, from festivals, tournaments, and runs to graduations, garden tours, and more. I can't squeeze in everything I want to do! There's also much excitement and growth going on within Roper St. Francis Healthcare. This spring we will be opening our relocated Roper Hospital Diagnostics & ER Northwoods, now with improved access and a brand new facility to better serve you. We are also happy to announce that our Moncks Corner location on Stoney Landing Road will soon be offering 3-D Mammography and Bone Density Imaging, again, to better meet your needs, where you are. And construction continues to progress on schedule at our Roper St. Francis Berkeley Hospital, with an opening date in early October. But in the meanwhile, as our recent 5-star quality rating from Centers for Medicare & Medicaid attests, Roper St. Francis continues to excel in what we've done for centuries—caring for you and your families. This issue of House Calls highlights how our nationally recognized Roper St. Francis Cancer Care program is saving lives thanks to groundbreaking treatments like immunotherapy, while also improving the cancer journey for patients and their loved ones. And I love the article on harnessing the power of endorphins—one of the main reasons I make time to run, bike, and hike, especially in spring. I hope I see you out and about, churning up our body's natural feel-good system. Thank you for reading and sharing House Calls, and for being a part of our Roper St. Francis family. You are the reason why our dedicated doctors and teammates do what we do, and I couldn't be more grateful.
