2022 President’s Report
Read the 2022 President's Report
The year 2022 saw significant progress in executing our bold strategic plan to strengthen our future.
One of the most complicated initiatives any healthcare system can undertake is implementing a new electronic medical record. Our doing so successfully stands as one of our marquis accomplishments. With Epic, a best-in-class system, we are fulfilling a promise to modernize our technology so we can care for future generations.
We showed exactly what it means to optimize the footprint and address future clinical needs by announcing a new, state-of-the-art, centrally located Roper Hospital Medical Campus in North Charleston, along with a new Medical Office Building in thriving Summerville and a much-need expansion of our busting-at-the-seams Roper St. Francis Berkeley Hospital.
Like so many healthcare systems across the country, Roper St. Francis Healthcare faced significant financial headwinds with inflation, a volatile market and lagging reimbursements.
Our executive leadership team in partnership and collaboration with our Integrated Practice Network dyads, took significant steps to improve sustainability by identifying new ways of growing revenue, curbing expenses and restructuring our senior leadership. And we expanded population management by exceeding Boeing’s expectations and renewing that longstanding partnership while expanding our clinically integrated care network to nearly 1,400 providers delivering excellent care across 58 specialties.
Clinical excellence is a perpetual priority, and we received numerous national accolades for our quality, including a five-star rating from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, two Top Hospital Awards and at least one “A” Safety Grades from The Leapfrog Group for all of our hospitals.
In addition, we maintained exceptional teammate engagement, ranking for the third consecutive year as one of Modern Healthcare’s top 150 ‘Best Places to Work’ as well as No. 2 on Forbes’ America’s Best Employers list for South Carolina.
At Roper St. Francis Healthcare, our mission of “healing all people with compassion, faith and excellence” is our creed. We have cared for the Lowcountry for more than 165 years, and we are privileged to continue doing so as we reach for our vision of “providing convenient, high value, clinically integrated care to all.”
