MUSC Health Jean & Hugh K. Leatherman Behavioral Care Pavilion

The innovative new MUSC Health Leatherman Pavilion will serve as a regional behavioral health center and include a combination of triage, crisis stabilization, telehealth, outpatient, and inpatient services that will expand much-needed behavioral health resources in the Pee Dee region. Once built, the center will occupy the site of an MUSC-owned property currently known as the Cedar Tower campus on E. Cedar Street in Florence. The project was coordinated through an advisory committee convened by South Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (SCDHSS) Director Robby Kerr.

The estimated opening date for the MUSC Health Jean and Hugh K Leatherman Behavioral Care Pavilion is October 2025.
