St. Joseph's/Candler's commitment to the Low County
Bluffton is one of the fastest growing communities in the nation, expanding by more than 40 percent since 2010. Because of this incredible growth, the demand for convenient, technologically-advanced medical care is growing also.

With an initial financial investment of $33.5 million (phase one), the campus is another shining example of St. Joseph's/Candler's long-standing commitment to helping the residents of the South Carolina Low Country live smarter and healthier lives.
