The possibility of a hospital in Evans is one step closer to becoming reality.
A spokesperson for University Hospital tells us they will respond to Columbia County's Request for Proposal.
The plans will include a 100-bed hospital near the already standing University Health System facilities on North Belair Road.
What services the hospital will provide will be determined based on the community's needs.
"At a time when there are hospitals all over the country shuttering, there are hospitals all over the country closing, this is an important time in healthcare. We want to make sure we can provide more access to people in our community and not less," says Community Services vice president Laurie Ott.
Ott tells us, if all goes as planned and the proposal becomes a reality, the hospital will be finished in 2016 or 2017.
