Charleston ENT & Allergy Celebrates 25 Years
Charleston ENT & Allergy of Charleston, South Carolina, marks its 25th birthday helping people in the Lowcountry region breathe, taste, hear and sleep better, according to a release. Since 1997, the ASC has provided high-quality medical care to all age groups, treating ear, nose, throat, allergy and head and neck conditions. Those conditions range from ear infections, hearing loss, allergies, tonsillitis and sinusitis to more complicated issues such as obstructive sleep apnea, thyroid, parathyroid and head and neck cancer surgeries. The surgery center uses a synergistic approach incorporating ENTs, allergists, audiologists, physician assistants, nurse practitioners and pharmacists to meet the needs of all patients.
Charleston ENT & Allergy started when a few popular ENT physicians merged with a vision to serve the needs of a growing community. The group has expanded over the past 25 years to provide services in Charleston (two locations), Mt. Pleasant (two locations), North Charleston, Summerville, Goose Creek and Moncks Corner. Most recently, the surgery center developed partnerships with physicians in Beaufort/Bluffton/HHI, Orangeburg and Columbia/Lexington. This growth has provided loyal patients with enhanced access to medical care, decreased wait times and technologically advanced medical solutions, according to the release.
Soon after the formation of the practice, Charleston ENT & Allergy dba The Surgery Center of Charleston opened with one operating room. In 2014, the center expanded to four rooms and continues to be highly regarded and fully accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care.
While Charleston ENT & Allergy has grown roots throughout the state for the past 25 years, the leadership attributes its success to its highly regarded staff of more than 350 employees, supporting more than 30 physicians and advanced practice practitioners, according to the release. The business is made up of numerous long-term employees in all job roles, many of whom have been with the company for more than 20 years.
At its core, Charleston ENT & Allergy fosters an atmosphere that is both empowering and philanthropic by caring for patients from local charity clinics, volunteering for community events, donating to a cause on casual Fridays or actively supporting health and wellness initiatives throughout the state, according to the release.
