Southern Senior Living celebrates grand opening of new office building


Southern Senior Living celebrated the grand opening of its newly constructed corporate office building and executive board room last week. The 4,545-square-foot office building, located on a 22.7-acre parcel of land near the Pocotaligo River in Manning, SC features a welcoming front porch, reception area, twelve offices, dedicated spaces for records and administrative equipment, breakroom for staff, and an elegant 660-square-foot Executive Board Room.

The grand opening celebration included a ribbon-cutting ceremony organized by the Manning Chamber of Commerce, and the dedication of The Aycock Board Room, dedicated in honor of Robert J. Aycock, III in appreciation of his service and outstanding leadership. Mr. Aycock is the current Chairman of the Clarendon Hospital District’s Board of Trustees, the governing body for Southern Senior Living.

The Board of Trustees will hold its first meeting in the new Aycock Board Room in November. The Aycock Board Room was designed and built to allow the Board adequate professional space to conduct monthly Board of Trustees’ meetings in its oversight role for Southern Senior Living. Other members of the Board include Vice-Chair Mary Prince, Secretary Badge Baker, Reverend Dr. George Windley, Tina Blakely-Huggins, Don Ellis, Cindy Falls, Dorothy Wilder, and Dr. Mayes DuBose.

Southern Senior Living is a not-for-profit special purpose district that operates and provides support for health and rehab centers in Clarendon and Berkeley Counties. The centers include Lake Marion Health and Rehab in Summerton, Windsor Manor in Manning’s Silver area, and Lake Moultrie Health and Rehab in St. Stephen, South Carolina.

The group is nearing the completion of constructing the Pocotaligo River Health and Rehab Center, located on the same campus at 3147 Sumter Hwy in Manning. The state-of-the art, 88-bed skilled nursing center is projected to open in January of 2022 and will replace the existing Windsor Manor facility.
