ews came fast and furious in the capital city and the Midlands in 2019, with January seeing the finalization of Dominion Energy’s acquisition of SCANA Corp. That deal, months in the making and full of twists and turns, provided a measure of closure to the years-long V.C. Summer saga, though one of the biggest tasks awaiting the General Assembly upon its January return will be deciding the fate of project coowner Santee Cooper. Legislators are expected to shift through several offers to buy the troubled, state-owned utility, saddled with billions in debt from the failed quest to build twin nuclear reactors in Fairfield County. Lawmakers will also likely continue debating education reform and face a 2020 general election. It’s a safe bet, though, that not all the area’s news will be confined to the Statehouse. That was certainly the case in 2019. In February, the Koger Center celebrated its 30th anniversary by kicking off a season filled with songs and shows, while in March, Columbia took a turn in the national spotlight, hosting an NCAA basketball regional that generated $11.3 million in economic impact and gave area hoops fans the chance to see high-flying Duke sensation Zion Williamson and eventual national champion Virginia. As summer heated up, five area charities split $100,000 generated from the sale of the Flip & Give house, a community initiative cooked up by local real estate firm The Moore Co. Online voters chose the charities, as well as design features, and local businesses donated their services to transform a Shandon bungalow into a showpiece. But as fall approached, the headlines turned from charity to controversy as the University of South Carolina elected a new president despite protests, leaving the state’s flagship university searching for unity in the vote’s aftermath. Industry of all types grew in the Midlands in 2019. HVAC manufacturer Trane expanded its Richland County facility by 700,000 square feet, while West Columbia-headquartered Nephron Pharmaceuticals Corp. continued making innovative inroads in medical technology. The BullStreet District landed the mixed-use development’s first national retailer and unveiled plans for a luxury apartment complex at the long-empty Babcock building at the heart of its 181-acre campus. Midlands educational partnerships flourished and West Columbia kept growing, though venerable Vista landmarks Nonnah’s and Flying Saucer closed their doors ahead of the holiday season. Newsmakers were everywhere in 2019, and covering it all was a daily challenge and reward. We’ve highlighted some of the year’s more memorable headlines in this year-end publication. Now, we’ll try to catch our breath before diving into 2020, when we’ll keep sharing the news from the steps of the Statehouse and beyond.

his year, the Central SC Alliance celebrates a very significant milestone, its 25th Anniversary. In 1994, a group of public and private sector leaders saw the need to create a regional approach to economic development. The core mission was quite simple then and holds true today — the attraction of jobs and capital investment. Organized and designated as a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation, the Central SC Alliance became South Carolina’s first regional development alliance designed to “lessen the burden of government” and eliminate duplication of efforts. This vision and the organization created out of it has resulted in regional collaboration and the creation of prosperity for the citizens in Central South Carolina. Over the past 25 years, the Central SC Alliance, along with its partners and allies, has worked with a host of companies who have considered a location in our region. Since 1994, 560 companies have announced a location or expansion in the region and committed to over $14 billion in capital investment and over 71,000 new jobs. We are confident in the growth and prosperity of the region over the next year and years to come.

Dominion acquisition of SCANA capped months of debate and lowered SCE&G customers’ bills By Melinda Waldrop

A

lmost a year to the day after first making details of its proposal to acquire SCANA Corp. public, Richmond, Va.-based Dominion Energy completed the merger, capping a tumultuous 12 months of legal maneuvering and absorbing South Carolina’s independent utility company. The $14.6 billion deal will provide ratepayers of former SCANA subsidiary S.C. Electric & Gas refunds in the form of monthly bill reductions of more than $2 billion over a 20-year period and make permanent a rate reduction of approximately 15%. The merger closes the books on SCANA, which fell on troubled times in the wake of a failed nuclear project, and brings a new look to SCE&G, now a wholly owned subsidiary of Dominion. On Jan. 2, Dominion announced a new operating segment, Southeast Energy Group, to contain SCANA’s existing operations and services. Several SCANA veterans, including former senior vice president Keller Kissam and CFO Iris Griffin, were named to leadership positions with the new group, while SCANA CEO Jimmy Addison’s Feb. 1 retirement was announced. “Today marks a significant milestone in the history of Dominion Energy and SCANA,” Addison said in a news release announcing the acquisition. “ … These two companies share common values, and this combination provides SCANA’s businesses with the scale and stability to meet customers’ growing energy needs in the years to come. The $2 billion in rate relief is the amount SCE&G’s 730,000 customers shelled out to pay for abandoned twin nuclear reactors at the V.C. Summer nuclear power station in Fairfield County, as well as the amount of a

settlement reached in a class action lawsuit against SCE&G and SCANA in November. The S.C. Public Service Commission gave the deal the final regulatory nod it needed on Dec. 21, and the merger was completed on Jan. 1. The completion marked a resolution to a large part of the V.C. Summer saga, which began in 2008 with plans to construct twin, 1,117-megawatt nuclear reactors at the Fairfield County facility. The project was presented as a way to provide a reliable power source for the future growth of SCE&G and project co-owner Santee Cooper, a state-owned utility with around 2 million S.C. customers. The reactors were originally projected to be online by 2016, but the project was plagued by delays and cost overruns and dogged by allegations of mismanagement. SCANA asked for and

received nine rate increases from the PSC to cover rising project costs under the Base Load Review Act, a controversial 2007 state law that allowed customers to be charged additional amounts before the reactors were completed. Amid mounting problems with several of its nuclear construction projects that contributed to Japan-based parent company Toshiba’s financial struggles, V.C. Summer project contractor Westinghouse declared bankruptcy in April 2017. That was quickly followed by separate announcements from SCE&G and Santee Cooper on July 31, 2017, that the reactors’ construction was being abandoned after the two companies had poured $9 billion into the project. The decision stunned state regulators who had greenlighted rate increases and cost nearly 5,400 workers their jobs. Public outrage grew with the September 2017 release of the Bechtel

report, completed in February 2016 by the engineering, construction and project management corporation. The report, released by Gov. Henry McMaster’s office in September, pointed to a lack of management, vision, goals and accountability between the project principles and found fault with Westinghouse’s design for constructing the reactors. Dominion announced details of its proposed acquisition of SCANA on Jan. 3, 2018, and began a public relations blitz to convince S.C. legislators and residents that its plan presented the most viable solution. Its original proposal, which called for a permanent SCE&G rate cut of 7% and an average $1,000 upfront refund, was not readily embraced by state politicians. Legislators, already convening commissions seeking answers to the V.C. Summer failure, also passed laws repealing the BLRA and fixing a temporary rate reduction of 15% in SCE&G bills. The PSC was one of several bodies, including the regulatory commissions of Georgia and North Carolina, where SCANA also did business, upon whose approval the deal was contingent. On Nov. 20, Dominion filed a revision that, inclusive of project costs amortization and refunds from the Tax Cuts and Jobs Acts of 2017, would lower the average SCE&G customer’s bill to $125.26 a month. That “levelized” plan, which also established a regulatory liability for refunds of money previously collected to be credited to SCE&G customers over 11 years, was the one which ultimately won PSC approval and paved the way for Jan. 1’s finalization of the merger.

Columbia’s NCAA regional generated $11.3M in economic impact By Melinda Waldrop

T

he NCAA men’s basketball regional held in Columbia in March brought a direct economic impact of $11.3 million to the capital city, a study by University of South Carolina sport and entertainment management professor Tom Regan found. The first and second rounds of the tournament, featuring Duke superstar Zion Williamson and eventual national champion Virginia, drew 47,977 fans from 33 states, Washington, D.C., and Canada, according to the study. That total ranked highest among the country’s eight first- and second-round NCAA sites. The study measured direct spending by out-of-town visitors attending NCAA games at Colonial Life Arena, home to the University of South Carolina men’s and women’s basketball teams, and related events. Initial estimates projected 25,000 fans and an economic impact of up to $9 million. “Columbia and the region got tremendous exposure — exposure that would very hard to pay for if we had to fork out those dollars,” Bill Ellen, president and CEO of Experience Columbia SC, said during a Nov. 6 news conference at the Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center. After his team’s two regional wins, including a one-point victory against Central Florida, Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski praised Columbia, saying, “What a beautiful city, everything about it.” Regan, who has completed approximately 100 economic studies ranging from the PGA Championship to NASCAR races in Darlington, distributed surveys during first-round games on March 22 and second-round games on March 24. After running the information gathered through statistical software, he extrapolated data for the Columbia metropolitan statistical area.

Regan, who was out of the country for the announcement, anticipated a large economic impact in March. “The hotels were full, and the spending was a lot,” he said after the regional. The study also found that indirect business taxes (sales, use and excise) totaled $1.38 million. “We were entrusted with one of the most revered sporting events in the country, and we passed with flying colors,” said Charles Bloom, executive associate athletics director and chief of staff for the University of South Carolina Athletics Department. Columbia is currently putting together its bid for the 2023 regional, due to the NCAA in February, said Kelly Barbrey, Experience Columbia SC vice president of marketing and communications. To aid the success of that bid, Ellen said downtown Columbia will need

more hotel rooms that meet NCAA requirements including full food and beverage service and meeting space. “We did have some challenges on some of the requirements from the NCAA as far as the number of fullservice hotel rooms available,” Ellen said. “We are limited in full-service hotels. Going forward, we’ll have to address those challenges. … There are new developers coming into town every month exploring the possibilities. We’ve got four years before they (the NCAA) could potentially be back. I think there’s some things in the pipeline.” Approval of a zoning variance in August cleared the way for the construction of the 150-room Hotel Anthem, a full-service branch of the Hilton Tapestry brand, on Gervais Street in the Vista. As to whether additional rooms can be filled when basketball fans aren’t in town, Ellen said, “That leads into

another issue, which is the expansion of the convention center. If we expand the convention center, which is desperately needed because we’re turning down millions of dollars in lost business, those hotels will be needed, and those extra rooms will go to use.” The March regional was the first such event held in Columbia in 49 years. Like all S.C. cities, Columbia was ineligible for an NCAA event for nearly 15 years. Beginning in 2001, the NCAA refused to allow predetermined championship events to be held in the state while the Confederate flag flew above the Statehouse. With the passage of legislation in July 2015 that led to the flag’s removal, the boycott ended, and two years later, Columbia was awarded a 2019 men’s basketball tournament regional. Greenville played host to regional competition in 2017, the same year Colonial Life played host to an NCAA women’s regional. Chris Stone, president of VisitGreenvilleSC, told The Greenville News that the 2017 men’s regional generated an estimated $3.6 million impact for that Upstate city, with more than 14,000 visitors with tickets coming to town. Regan said Columbia’s turn in the spotlight could have longer-term ramifications, with visitors returning for business or pleasure trips. Columbia Mayor Pro Tem Tameika Isaac Devine echoed those hopes after seeing the economic impact figures. Devine said data compiled during the NCAA bid process will help the city attract conferences and other events, and she said Columbia now has a better idea of its capacity to play host to such big-time happenings. “We look at it as an investment for our strategic process going forward,” Devine said.

USC tries to move forward after presidential controversy By Melinda Waldrop and Renee Sexton

T

wo weeks after the contentious election of a new president, the University of South Carolina bid farewell to a beloved retiring leader while his controversial successor urged a focus on the future. Lt. Gen. Robert Caslen Jr., a former superintendent at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, was elected to replace Harris Pastides at a USC board of trustees meeting on July 19. Pressed into action by S.C. Gov. Henry McMaster after the university decided in April to reopen the presidential search, the board voted in favor of Caslen with 11 yes votes, eight no votes and one vote of present. Following the vote, an extended chant of “Shame! Shame! Shame!” broke out among a crowd gathered outside the filled-to-capacity meeting room at the Pastides Alumni Center. Caslen was one of four finalists identified by a search committee in April, but the university decided to reopen the search after an outcry over a lack of diversity among the four male contenders. Caslen, who will receive an annual salary of $650,000, was also the only candidate with previous experience leading an institute of higher education. “Shame on you,” USC associate professor Bethany Bell told the board after the vote. Bell, the university’s Faculty Welfare Committee chair, leads a group of faculty, staff and alumni called Gamecocks4Intergrity who rallied July 17 to call on the board to cancel the vote. McMaster, who serves as ex officio chair of the board, pushed for the vote. The night before the vote, influential USC donor Darla Moore, whose name is on the university’s business school, weighed in. In a letter to board chair John von Lehe, Moore wrote that the selection process should be restarted, saying that Caslen does not have the

support of university constituencies. Moore has donated more than $75 million to her alma mater. Before the vote, von Lehe said the body takes concerns about Caslen’s candidacy and the election process seriously, but that those concerns “must be weighed against Gen. Caslen’s considerable qualifications.” Pastides, who led USC for 10 years, announced his retirement in October 2018. He oversaw a record-setting $1 billion fundraising campaign in 2015 and presided over a 25% enrollment increase across the USC system to more than 51,000 students, according to the university. The board of trustees’ July 19 vote came one week after a previously scheduled meeting, requested by McMaster, was canceled because of a court order. A Richland County judge determined the public was not given five days’ notice

of the meeting, in violation of state law. About 300 students, faculty, alumni and community members attended the rescheduled vote or waited outside the meeting room. USC student body president Luke Rankin told the board he had heard from students who supported Caslen and those who opposed him. The students’ objection was more about the election process, he said, noting the vote came during USC’s summer session, when few students are on campus. Board member Charles Williams, at whose request the court injunction was issued, spoke against holding the vote. “I think this board is asleep,” Williams said. “I think this board is denying consequences they have created. … We’re in a helluva mess. The damage is done. It’s just a question of how much more damage there’s going to be.” Board member and S.C. Superinten-

dent of Education Molly Spearman said she spoke to Caslen after the search was reopened and came away from their wide-ranging conversation, which touched on public education, convinced that he deserves a chance to lead USC. “I was extremely impressed with his ideas and his vision,” Spearman said. Christian Anderson, a USC associate professor and president of the newly formed university chapter of the American Association of University Professors, expects difficult times ahead at the state’s flagship university. “I was opposed to a vote under political pressure. I was opposed to holding a vote in the summer with little notice, without going through the process like they promised they would back in April,” Anderson said. “I fully expected that we would see the search reopened after the school year started.” USC’s Faculty Senate passed a unanimous vote of “no confidence” in Caslen’s candidacy earlier in July. Retired lieutenant colonel and 30-year Army reservist Ray Moore, who also attended the board vote, said Caslen is the best person for the job. “He’s got a wonderful reputation,” Moore said “ ... The best people in the military and in the Army get chosen to be superintendent of West Point, so this is a big deal, and it’s a wonderful thing for the state of South Carolina.” In a July 22 introductory news conference at USC’s School of Law, Caslen said it was time to move forward. “We learned a lot,” Caslen said. “I’m sure the board learned a lot. I learned a lot. The University of South Carolina community learned a lot through all of this. And I think it’s important to look at the lessons and to learn from them and to make the appropriate changes and to now move forward. “And moving forward, we move forward together. “

During a June meeting, Columbia City Council voted 6-1 on a second reading to extend the contract on the purchase of Capital City Stadium on Assembly Street. The contract extension gives the developer, Weddle Real Estate Investment, until May 1, 2020, to fulfill several obligations. Under the terms of the contract, City Councilman Howard Duvall told the Columbia Regional Business Report that Weddle Real Estate Investments must provide a total of

$165,000 in earnest money to be paid in increments as the project receives approvals and permits. Weddle Real Estate Investments plans to tear down the historic ballpark to build a mixed-use development consisting of market-rate apartments and retail space on the nearly six-acre site. Duvall said Weddle purchased the contract from Bright-Meyers 2001 LLC. Part of Weddle’s contract with the city includes a contribution to Historic Columbia to document the history of the ballpark. ­­­— Renee Sexton

While the Babcock building awaits its transformation, a flurry of work continues throughout the rest of the 181-acre BullStreet property. Hughes Development announced in November that Starbucks is scheduled to open a stand-alone café in the spring of 2021. The 2,500-square-foot café with a drive-through will be built along Bull Street near the REI Co-Op store. “One of the most frequently asked questions we receive is about whether BullStreet is getting a Starbucks,” said Robert Hughes, president of Hughes Development Corp. “I’m happy to report that Starbucks is coming, and it will be positioned perfectly to accommodate commuters as well as those who live and work in and near the district.” A traffic signal will be installed at

the BullStreet development overall,” he said. “It’s got to get redeveloped, and if we can turn it into luxury apartments, it’s going to be a tremendous addition to the BullStreet campus redevelopment.” Hughes Development Corp. project manager Chandler Cox said the Greenville-based BullStreet master developer has been working with Clachan for some time on the Babcock building. “We’ve been very involved in the Clachan project since they started working on it, but they very much have kept a low profile,” she said. “They just put their head down and get to work, and so the amount of things that they have overcome and the amount of work that’s gone into that project is pretty incredible.” The estimated completion date for the Babcock project is 2022.

the intersection of Bull and Williams streets to allow access to the Starbucks. Work commenced this summer on the building for outdoor retailer REI Co-op. Interior wall framing is complete. Exterior storefront glass was scheduled to begin Thanksgiving week, while streetscaping, including sidewalks and landscaping, began in December. The 20,000-square-foot REI store, the development’s first national retailer, is scheduled to open in summer 2020. “There are lots of construction crews on site for REI (and) for other projects onsite, including some site work (and) grading that’s going on as part of the University of South Carolina’s Medical School project,” Cox said. The University of South Carolina is building a health sciences center along Harden Street. Applications are being accepted at Merrill Gardens, a $35 million senior living apartment complex, while construction crews are finalize interior upfits. The project is slated to be completed in early 2020. All five TownPark Townhomes constructed in phase one have been sold and construction for phase two is about to get underway. Cox said construction continues on a 20-acre public park, with irrigation installation nearing completion and grass installation starting in December. The park is set to open next spring. In 2020, crews will begin continuing Freed Drive to Bull Street and Boyce Street to Colonial Drive to allow better access to Segra Park. “If it seems like there’s suddenly a lot going on in the BullStreet District, you are correct,” said Hughes. “There’s always a lot going on, and it’s that excitement that fuels our commitment to building this community.”

he momentum at the mixedused BullStreet District development received a major boost with the detailing of luxury apartment plans for the historic Babcock building. Richmond, Va. developer Clachan Properties presented more than 800 pages of blueprints and plans to the Columbia City Council Bull Street Commission in late October. The landmark building where S.C. State Hospital patients were once treated will be converted into 208 luxury apartments with amenities including fitness studios and a swimming pool. The project is expected to cost more than $40 million. Hugh Shytle, president of Clachan Properties, described the Babcock building as a “once-in-a-lifetime project.” Clachan is currently working on final tax credit authorization, approval for a Housing and Urban Development loan, and final construction sizing and costing. Construction on the first phase of the 146,000-square-foot project is expected begin in 2020. “A lot of people looked at it, and a lot of people decided not to pursue it,” Shytle said. “By hook or by crook, we decided to bite it off, and there have been any number of challenges. It’s taken us a while to get to the point where we’re at, but we’ve been able to overcome the challenges and we’re just thrilled to be involved with it.” Shytle said despite its current deterioration, including a fire nearly one year ago, the Babcock building is an important landmark worth renovating. “It’s just an iconic building. You just ride up to it and you see the cupola, and then you walk the building and you think about what it once was and how it could be a positive driver for

we do. Yes, we are a national organization and a major fundraiser for important medical research, but what many might not realize is the impact we’re making right here in the Midlands. In fact, here in Columbia, the AHA has partnered with many individuals and organizations, including DHEC, Carolina Nutrition Consultants, Nephron Pharmaceuticals, Eat Smart Move

More, and Holy Stroke, to name a few. Partnering with local organizations allows us to maximize our resources to improve the health of the Midlands community. Last year, in an effort to address the most critical needs, we completed a community assessment together with local organizations. Through interviews, research data and listening to the community, we uncovered these alarming statistics that are affecting the Midlands. • 38 percent of the community experiences low food access and food insecurity issues.

• Over half of the population is overweight and 32 percent would be classified as obese. • One-third of the population has high blood pressure — a preventable risk factor for heart attack and stroke. To combat food insecurity in the Midlands, we’ve collaborated with TD Bank to host family health and wellness workshops focused on nutritional health, physical activity and eating healthy on a budget. Engaging with local organizations allows us to bridge the gap between available resources and the families in our community. Four workshops are scheduled through June at the Drew Wellness Center. We’re also supporting Dr. Anil Yallapragada in leading the Holy Stroke initiative, a stroke prevention program. The goal of the program is to engage with faith-based organizations to reduce the incidents of stroke through wellness screenings, healthy food and beverage church policies, and stroke education and programs, including the American Heart Association’s Life’s Simple 7. Life’s Simple 7 is a list of small changes we can make in seven areas that will have a major impact in improving heart health — stop smoking, lose weight, control blood sugar, exercise, eat healthy and control cholesterol and blood pressure. Locally, the number of Midlands adults living with high blood pressure could fill Williams-Brice Stadium’s 80,000-plus seats nearly four times. Additionally, high blood pressure is the number one modifiable risk factor for heart disease. Because there is an alarming number of Midlands residents living with high blood presssure, the AHA Midlands Board of Directors has a strategic focus to improve blood pressure outcomes in our community. Changing the health of the community doesn’t happen overnight, but we are getting started, and we’re making an impact now. With community members, for community members, right here in Columbia, we are working to create a culture of health. For more information, go online to www. heart.org/midlands.

Lutheran Homes: Unmatched level of care 100 years of commitment to highest quality of physical, mental and spiritual well-being at five locations across South Carolina BY D E N I SE D I CK I NSE N • V I CE P R E SI D E N T • LU T H E R A N H O M E S O F SO U T H C A RO LI N A

Frank Shepke (left), President and CEO, and Denise Dickinsen, Vice President of Planned Growth and Development, help ensure each resident at Lutheran Homes of South Carolina’s five campuses receive the best care possible.

or anyone considering a retirement community, there is a plethora of options throughout South Carolina. Only one offers the array of benefits provided by Lutheran Homes of South Carolina at its five campuses around the state. Lutheran Homes boasts all this: • a 100-year history of commitment to residents • continuum of care services at five locations • doting attention on residents only possible at a nonprofit care community • full suite of activities that promotes the well-being of mind, body and soul • in-home care services to help nonresidents age well in place • the loving comfort of hospice services No other retirement community delivers so much. As a bonus for those who value a spiritual dimension, the five campuses — Franke at Seaside in Mount Pleasant, Heritage at Lowman near Lake Murray, Trinity on Laurens in Aiken, RoseCrest in the foothills of the Blue Ridge mountains, and Rice Estate in Columbia — are built on a Christian mission of service to the community. They imbue their programs with a spiritual underpinning, including chaplaincy services at all their locations. A value add for those so inclined, Lutheran Homes welcomes people of all faiths and creeds to join their communities. Team members at Lutheran Homes facilities are fully engaged in the culture of service, devoted to the needs and desires of residents whom they refer to as “Priorities.” Their mantra is “Five to THRIVE” — an acronym for the quintet of ways team members can take five minutes of extra effort to provide a world-class experience for every individual “Priority.” “Priorities who come to be served by us are the most important thing we do every day,” says Frank Shepke, Lutheran Homes President and CEO. A care continuum guides residents over time through a comprehensive array of health services spanning all levels and intensity of care, from independent living to assisted living and skilled nursing. Four of the five Lutheran Home communities also include short-term rehabilitation programs that help speed recovery and return patients to their lives at the highest level of independence possible. Whether positioned amid the hubbub of cities or ensconced in pastoral settings, Lutheran Homes campuses are oases of community, with programs that stimulate all dimensions of wellness, not just physical. Imagine living in a community where daily programs keep life interesting, such as inter-generational activities with children, holiday parties, musical activities, field trips, computer training, guest speakers on

topics as varied as economic development and the lives of hummingbirds, and so much more on and off campus. Dedication to the whole person, supported by the mission-driven philosophy, is a hallmark of Lutheran Homes communities. “We believe that every Priority deserves wellness that extends throughout one’s life,” says Denise Dickinsen, Vice President, Planned Growth & Development. Staff on the five campuses provides the full spectrum of health care services, but they also cater to the lifestyles of those still active and independent. Residents at Franke at Seaside can get into sticky wickets at the new croquet field while enjoying a fulfilling, independent lifestyle among the sea oats, cattails and sea-salt breeze just minutes from the Atlantic Ocean. Those wishing to be closer to the middle of the state can sit back and relax or stay busy with a full social calendar at the Heritage at Lowman near Lake Murray, or work on their short game on the putting green. For those needing a helping hand for daily activities or hygiene,

“With a focus on ministry, mission and wellness around the state, Lutheran Homes campuses offer programs for nearly every lifestyle, rooted in faith and obsessive dedication to treating residents like royalty.” — DENISE DICKINSEN

Trinity on Laurens is an oasis in the middle of downtown Aiken — a beautiful, fun-filled town where time seems to stand still. RoseCrest, located north of Spartanburg, and Rice Estate in Columbia are perfect refuges to focus on healing and let go of the worries of daily life. Instead, residents and clients have full access to state-of-the-art rehabilitation equipment with a knowledgeable, caring staff available to ensure your road to recovery is smooth and efficient so you’re sure to get back to your optimal level of independence. Lutheran Homes’ commitment to well-being goes beyond their campuses. Their suite of BeWell Home Services and BeWell@Home includes nonmedical assistance for residents and nonresidents alike, and

BeWell@Home adds a continuum of care and healthy lifestyle coaching. Lutheran Hospice provides compassionate end-of-life care. The goal in all cases is to help everyone, regardless of where they live, to remain as independent as possible for as long as possible. With a focus on ministry, mission and wellness around the state, Lutheran Homes campuses offer programs for nearly every lifestyle, rooted in faith and obsessive dedication to treating residents like royalty.
