Union Medical Center construction updates

Spartanburg Regional Healthcare System has unveiled plans for the new $55 million Union Medical Center replacement facility. The combined replacement hospital and medical office building creates a sustainable model for health care in Union County that centralizes physician practices, outpatient services, and inpatient care.

Located along Highway 176 across from Union Industrial Park and four miles from the current hospital, the new three-story, 99,600-square-foot Union Medical Center puts the patient first and is designed with a focus on accessibility and high-quality care.

The hospital’s design includes large windows and open spaces with natural accents, promoting vibrancy throughout the campus. Photographs of iconic Union County scenes will be featured, showcasing the hospital’s commitment to the community, the area and its residents. An inviting chapel will offer a calming space for prayer, and a healing garden at the hospital’s entrance will welcome patients and guests. 

Site preparation for the new facility began in spring 2023, with building completion expected in 2025.
