  4. 4. Opening ThOughTs Springtime has given us much to be thankful for today and even more to look forward to in the future. We recently celebrated two major milestones with the 25th anniversary of Harrison Peeples Health Care Center and the 10th anniversary of the Beaufort Memorial Keyserling Cancer Center. Besides celebrating 25 years of primary care for the Hampton County community, weve made Ob-Gyn services available to area residents with the additions at Harrison Peeples of a physician and a nurse practitioner who have access to maternal fetal medicine specialists through the Medical University of South Carolinas telemedicine program. Celebrating the Keyserling Cancer Center means celebrating our commu- nitys enormous philanthropic support for the center and, most important, the many cancer survivors who for the past decade could receive much-needed care close to home. With our recent affiliation with the MUSC Hollings Cancer Center, patients soon will have another reason to celebrate: continued access to National Cancer Institute-designated clinical trials in Beaufort. This spring we received approval from the state to move forward with plans for a $6 million renovation and expansion of our Collins Birthing Center; con- struction is scheduled to begin later this year. Weve also expanded Ob-Gyn services at our Beaufort Memorial Bluffton Medical Services location in Westbury Park with three board-certified physicians now providing care to women of all ages. Finally, all nine of our primary care providers at Lowcountry Medical Group Primary Care are accepting new patients. Theyre ready to help you live well, so no more excuses about getting that annual physical! As you can see, we have much to celebrate, and so do you. Now take a look inside for helpful tips on how to become and stay activeand the benefits of doing so.
