MUSC PRIMARY CARE TO OPEN PRACTICE ON DI
MUSC Health plans to open a primary care practice on Daniel Island. According to Tony Ciuffo, a public affairs and media relations representative for MUSC, the new location will meet the growing demand of patients in need of primary care on Daniel Island.
Dr. Terrence Steyer, chief of MUSC Health Primary Care, shared that MUSC is currently in the process of leasing space that’s conveniently located and well-equipped for the new medical office’s needs.
“We are tremendously excited to announce that we will soon be part of the ‘Island Town’ community, offering MUSC Health Primary Care services,” Dr. Steyer said. “This new practice will allow us to provide additional access to health care to Daniel Island residents and workforce, many of whom have had to travel to Mount Pleasant, downtown Charleston and other locations to see their primary care provider.”
The practice is projected to open at the end of this year and will offer comprehensive primary care for the whole family. It will be staffed with a health care team that includes family medicine physicians; advanced practice providers, such as a nurse practitioner or physician assistant; and accompanying care team members, added Steyer.
Services will include care for sudden illnesses and injuries, chronic care management, wellness and preventive medicine for patients of all ages. In addition, patients will have timely access to MUSC specialists at a location most convenient to them. The new practice will accept the same insurance plans as MUSC Health currently accepts, Dr. Steyer explained.
“This new practice will provide a medical home base for MUSC Health Primary Care that will allow us to meet the health care needs of the Daniel Island community.”

TIGER CORNER FARMS BREAKS GROUND ON NEW FACILITY
Tiger Corner Farms, a company that designs and builds aeroponic farms housed inside recycled shipping containers, has officially broken ground on its new facility on Clements Ferry Road, according to General Manager Stefanie Swackhamer. The facility will be located in the same building as the new True Value, across from Beresford Hall. The location will allow Tiger Corner Farms to build several farm pods simultaneously as well as house their Vertical Roots farm pods, which will grow fresh produce to be distributed to local grocery stores. Vertical Roots currently provides fresh produce to Daniel Island-based Dockery’s restaurant from pods stationed on site. Tiger Corner Farms’ staff members are working from a temporary mobile site as construction gets underway at the new Clements Ferry Road location, but work should be completed by late summer or early fall, stated Swackhamer.
