Dr. Monnie Singleton shares his plans for development of the Singleton Rural Healthcare Campus in Orangeburg during a community awareness meeting at Trinity United Methodist Church’s Curry Center on Feb. 21. He said the facility’s focus on preventative health care will distinguish it from other facilities.
Singleton said his plans for the proposed Singleton Rural Healthcare Campus are “the fruition of a vision formed over 15 years ago.” “This health campus development is designed to bring health care services in Orangeburg and surrounding counties into the 21st century,” he said.
“The campus is being developed with health in mind as opposed to caring for diseases only.”
Singleton said his focus on preventative health care will distinguish the campus. The facility will use technology to “close the gap of distance and time in providing services to rural communities,” with an increased focus on social determinants of health such as education, fitness and nutrition, he said.
