D ear friends, How good it is to welcome longer days of sunshine and watch the Lowcountry come into bloom. Springtime feels full of promise and energy, and that's exactly how I feel about Roper St. Francis Healthcare. We recently celebrated the "topping out" in the construction of our Roper St. Francis Berkeley Hospital (see photo at right), but I assure you, we are far from topped out in our dedication to serving you and your family. From our Berkeley expansion to exciting progress on building our new Senior Center at Bon Secours St. Francis Hospital in West Ashley (see page 14), our health system is actively extending our outreach in this community to bring our depth of experience and quality care to all who need it. And we can only do this because of the trust you continue to put in us as your caregivers. We don't take that for granted. I do hope that you will enjoying being outdoors and active in Charleston's glorious spring weather. Our House Calls feature on the hazards of too much screen time may be just the nudge you need to unplug and go for a walk. This issue is full of other healthy tips too, including a calorie-burning guide to spring cleaning and recipes highlighting heart-healthy greens. We hope you enjoy House Calls, and invite you to follow us on social media so you can stay tuned to the many ways Roper St. Francis helps you be your healthiest. To a vibrant spring season, Lorraine and Steve Porter, VP & CEO of Roper Hospital and Roper St. Francis Berkeley Hospital, sign a beam that will be placed in the new hospital.
