St. Joseph’s/Candler in Pooler

The Pooler medical campus will offer a broad range of medical services for the growing population in west Chatham and nearby counties. Opening in March, the 170,000-square-foot campus will contribute to Pooler’s economic development by employing approximately 80 co-workers.

St. Joseph’s/Candler has been in Pooler since 1992 and has expanded services to correspond to the growth of the area. In addition to a thriving primary care practice, St. Joseph’s/Candler has built offices for specialty physicians and an advanced imaging center. But now is the time for more and to take St. Joseph’s/Candler’s advanced services to the community.  

The new 18-acre campus will be located on Pooler Parkway near the intersection with Interstate 16. The project will be multi-phased and built out over a ten-year-period to create a multi-story, technologically advanced medical facility.

It will house offices for specialty and primary care offices in close proximity to key clinical services. The total estimated cost of the project is $62 million.


Phase I of the St. Joseph’s/Candler Pooler Campus will be about 83,600 square feet and cost $31.2 million. It will open in March and house distinct medical offices and clinical services.

The medical office building will contain:

  • Primary Care Services
  • Urgent Care Services (opening shortly after March)
  • Specialist offices

The clinical services portion will contain: 

  • Outpatient Surgery Services, including the da Vinci Robotic Surgical System
  • Endoscopy Services
  • Advanced Imaging Services
  • Outpatient Physical Therapy Services
  • Laboratory Services
  • Wellness Services
  • Medication Management

Phase II is expected to include:

  • Expanded primary care offices
  • Expanded specialty offices
  • Wound Care
  • Cardiac rehab
  • Occupational medicine
  • Diagnostic cardiology
  • Short stay observation beds

The St. Joseph’s/Candler Pooler Campus fills a significant community gap in the rapidly developing Pooler area. Many of the housing subdivisions are completely built out and others are filling up.

This key location will serve the populations of Pooler and west Chatham County, Effingham County, Bulloch County, Bryan County, Liberty County as well as Jasper County and Bluffton in South Carolina.

St. Joseph’s/Candler has been building a significant regional footprint – now with 87 provider locations spanning 33 counties in southeastern Georgia and South Carolina. The Pooler campus is a key strategy to better serve the patients who rely on our regional offices.
