S.C. healthcare facility taking down tower, change parking system

August 18, 2016

Demolition of four stories of the Self Regional Healthcare tower adjacent to the emergency room will result in the yearlong closure of an entrance and complete overhaul of its parking layout, according to an article on the Index-Journal website.

It's among the most significant changes to Greenwood, S.C., healthcare facility since the opening of a $60 million, 120-foot-tall patient tower in 2006.

"As healthcare has changed, it has become largely outpatient, and the facility is pretty much vacant, so it's inefficient to keep it going."
