Construction is underway for a two-story, 26,000-square-foot medical complex near the west entrance to St. James Plantation in Brunswick County.

The complex will be known as the Dosher Wellness Center and be operated by Dosher Memorial Hospital. St. James and Summit Healthcare Group, a private developer, formed a partnership to finance and construct the building shell at a $6 million cost, hospital officials said in a news release.

Once the initial phase of construction is completed, Dosher will invest another $1.9 million to equip the facility for the specific health and wellness services offered.

Outpatient services planned on the first floor include physician offices for primary care, cardiology and rotating specialists, cardiac rehabilitation, physical therapy, X-ray, laboratory draw station, indoor walking track for patients and other services.

The second floor will be available for expansion, officials said.

Construction is expected to conclude in the spring, with an opening planned for May.

By comparison, this facility will be more than twice the size of the Dosher Medical Plaza on Long Beach Road in Oak Island.

“The Dosher Wellness Center will be our twelfth outpatient clinic in south Brunswick County. Our nine primary care and two specialty clinics from Holden Beach to Bald Head Island are popular with patients, and we expect this one – our largest to date – will be as well,” Tom Siemers, Dosher president and CEO, said in the news release.

Bobby Masters, general manager of the 6,000-acre St. James Plantation golf and marina community, said the complex “will be a great benefit for our residents and also will make us even more attractive to prospective buyers.”

Dosher and St. James officials have discussed the possibility of a clinic at the community for several years.

“The feasibility of a Dosher clinic at this location grew into reality because of two factors: continued growth along the Highway 211 corridor and completion of the new bridge over the Intracoastal Waterway to Oak Island,” Siemers said.
