Recognized for its leading edge technology and best practices, Roper Hospital builds on a long legacy of excellence. Founded as the first community hospital in the Carolinas, Roper Hospital was established in 1829 by a $30,000 bequest that Colonel Thomas Roper left to the Medical Society of South Carolina to treat the sick without regard to race, religion or nationality.
Today, Roper Hospital is one of the most trusted names in healthcare in the Lowcountry. The hospital has won numerous national awards for quality patient care and enjoys an excellent reputation for providing state-of-the-art health services.
