Irmo, SC (WLTX) - A milestone was reached Tuesday for the new Palmetto Health Baptist Parkridge project that's under construction in Irmo.
They held a topping off ceremony, hoisting a tree up to the highest point of the construction site.
Those who took part say a lot of work has gone into the new $100 million facility.
"We just want to say thank you to the entire community out here," said Palmetto Health President John Singerling. "We've been talking about having an active presence out here for a long long time and it's right around the corner, and we look forward to seeing everybody here in December 2013 for the cutting of the ribbon and the grand opening."
The facility will have 76 inpatient beds, six operating rooms and a labor and delivery unit, among other features.
