HopeHealth holds ribbon cutting for new pediatrics location
HopeHealth Pediatrics in Florence and CARE House of the Pee Dee held a ribbon cutting Jan. 21 for their new location at 1920 2nd Loop Road and streamed the event on Facebook Live.

“There was a significant need for more access and space for our pediatric patients,” said Dr. Edward Behling, chief medical officer. “The new multidisciplinary pediatric facility expands our services as well as our capacity to accept more pediatric patients. The relocation of this specialty also creates available space to provide additional services at our Medical Plaza location.”
As part of an integrated care model, HopeHealth Pediatrics in Florence includes an on-site behavioral health consultant and a lactation room (services will be offered in the near future. More resources, such as therapy, are planned in the near future.
