D ear friends, Summer's pleasures are hard to beat—longer days and long beach walks. Warm breezes and pop-up thunderstorms. Kids with their corner lemonade stands and ice cream trucks cruising by. I'm looking forward to Johns Island tomatoes, fresh Lowcountry shrimp, and more time with my family, and I hope you are as well. But it's also a busy time for our Roper St. Francis family, so my hammock might not get as much use as I'd like. We kicked off our summer with a Blessing of the Land for our long-awaited Roper St. Francis Berkeley Hospital. While the planning and behind-the-scenes work has been going on for years, we are thrilled to be underway with construction. This means that our neighbors in the rapidly growing Carnes Crossroads, Moncks Corner, and Goose Creek communities will soon have more convenient access to our doctors and the high quality care they've been asking for, for years. In other news, we're excited to welcome Steve Porter as the new CEO of Bon Secours St. Francis Hospital. Steve brings 25 years of healthcare administration experience, much of it in varying roles with Sentara Healthcare in Virginia. We are delighted that Steve is joining our team, and I trust you'll help us make him and his family feel at home in Charleston. I hope your hammock and beach chairs get plenty of use, and that you'll tuck this issue of House Calls in your beach bag. Read up on tips for a healthy back, news on lung cancer screening, and (importantly) where to get delicious, healthy crab cakes, and let us know what you think via Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter. My family and I look forward to our first Charleston summer with you! With warm well wishes, Lorraine Lutton at the Blessing of the Land event for Roper St. Francis Berkeley Hospital, June 22.
