(Bluffton, South Carolina) – Caris Healthcare, a statewide hospice provider, recently opened an office in Bluffton, South Carolina. The office is located at 14 Westbury Parkway, Unit 104, Bluffton, SC, 29910.

For many consecutive years, Caris ranks above the nation in key performance indicators, including pain and symptom management, according to Strategic Healthcare Programs, LLC. Caris intends to bring this high-level, end-of-life care to the community of Bluffton, South Carolina.

“Caris has been looking for opportunities to grow in South Carolina,” said Brad Rector, Senior Vice President of Operations. “We found a need in the Bluffton area, and we are honored to deliver compassionate care to those patients and families who need our services.”
