Roper Hospital Diagnostics the newest addition to a suite of medical offices Roper St. Francis Healthcare operates on James Island is now open for patients.

The crown jewel of the new office, located at 325 Folly Road, is a $2 million GE 1.5 Tesla Wide Bore MRI machine, which accommodates larger patients than a typical MRI machine using more advanced technology.

The new medical diagnostics center is the consolidation of two smaller offices in West Ashley and on James Island.
