MUSC soon will be offering new care options for patients living west of the Ashley.

MUSC Health officials confirmed Monday the hospital system plans to open an outpatient care center at the Citadel Mall as early as 2018.

The new location is intended to provide more convenience for patients so they don't have to travel onto the peninsula to receive care and treatment.

"With patient expectations for convenience and parking, and the major growth we continue to see in the Charleston area, this location enables us to be responsive to those expectations," MUSC spokesperson Heather Wooline says.

Hospital officials say new technology advances are allowing doctors to offer more services outside the main location.

"We see that area as a great place to expand our ambulatory services as the City works to implement its revitalization and continued growth plans for West Ashley," Woolwine says.

The Citadel Mall location is expected to open in the next 12 to 18 months.
