East Cooper Medical Center (ECMC) celebrated the opening of the Mullis Building, their new medical office building, with an open house last week. Members of town council, ECMC Board of Directors, physicians and the community were in attendance.

The Mullis Building was named in recognition of Danny Mullis, board chair for East Cooper Medical Center, for his soon-to-be 25 years of service and dedication to the hospital.

After opening remarks by Danny Mullis, Thomasena Stokes-Marshall and Jason Alexander, CEO of East Cooper Medical Center, the ribbon cutting took place followed by tours of the building.

“This celebration gives us the opportunity to thank everyone involved in making this campus expansion possible.

The support we’ve received from our associates, physicians, the Town of Mount Pleasant, board members and Tenet Healthcare has allowed East Cooper Medical Center to broaden the scope of services we provide to meet the needs of our growing community,” said Alexander.

The new 42,000-square-foot medical office building is located at 851 Leonard Fulghum Blvd., adjacent to East Cooper Medical Center. The building includes physician practices with a focus on women’s services and orthopedic services, as well as outpatient physical therapy and laboratory services.

The building is decorated with original artwork from the Mount Pleasant Artists Guild. More than 80 paintings will be displayed with all of the artwork for purchase.

The physician practices and services available at the Mullis Building include ECMC Laboratory Services, Outpatient Rehabilitation, East Cooper Sports Medicine, East Cooper OB/GYN, Lowcountry OB/GYN, Southern Orthopedics, Sports Medicine Specialists of Charleston and CIAO (Charleston Institute for Advanced Orthopedics).
