Savannah River Dermatology to move from University Hospital to Martinez location

Posted: December 16, 2015 - 12:15am

A patch of woods on Furys Ferry Road will become a small medical office complex next year.

Savannah River Derma­tology is planning to move from the third floor of the University Hospital medical office building to 541 Furys Ferry Road next year, which is north of the entrance to West
Lake.

Plans submitted to the Columbia County Planning Department indicate there would be two other medical offices on the 11-acre development.

Dr. Anna Kay Duckworth founded Savannah River Dermatology in 2008. The practice is moving from 465 N. Belair Road, Suite 3B, in Martinez to be closer to clients, according to Dennis Trotter, representing the business.

Trotter pushed the property’s rezoning in November to professional from single-family residential and Planned Development District.

Trotter said a groundbreaking is expected in the spring. The dermatology office should be ready by the end of the year, he
said.

As a condition of the rezoning, the development will have a 30-foot buffer to West Lake, more than the recommended 20 feet.

“The West Lake properties owners association concurs with the petitioners request to rezone, subject to those conditions,” said a letter from attorney Wright McLeod, representing the West Lake HOA.

The land at 541 and 605 Furys Ferry Road is owned by West Lake Inc., according to county property records
