Life at BG
A connected community
With myriad state-of-the-art amenities, the BG Wellness center features cardiovascular exercise and weight training equipment, regular fitness classes, and personalized rehab and physical therapy services.
An indoor saline swimming pool and spa are open year-round, while croquet courts and nature trails beckon for fresh-air activity. Meanwhile, the full-service Spa at Bishop Gadsden offers enviable pampering services, including massages, facials, manicures, and pedicures from a licensed esthetician and an experienced staff.
Health Care Services
Bishop Gadsden offers several convenient forms of health care, including an on-site clinic affiliated with Roper St. Francis and a strong relationship with MUSC. Serving residents’ regular and specialty medical needs, the clinic offers x-ray and bloodwork services and welcomes occasional visiting providers, such as podiatrists and dentists. Led by our Roper-affiliated medical director, our robust clinic staff includes LPNs, physicians assistants, and a nursing team.
Further streamlining care, Bishop Gadsden also boasts an on-site pharmacy. Working closely with our medical team, our resident pharmacist ensures residents’ prescriptions are quickly and easily accessible. While we encourage residents to take advantage of this service, we also maintain vendor partnerships with several outside pharmacies who deliver directly to our campus.
Bishop Gadsden’s identity as a faith-based community lies at the heart of our campus. Though officially associated with The Episcopal Church, our chapel hosts weekly services for residents of various traditions, including Methodist, Presbyterian, and Catholic services and Jewish Shabbat.
In addition, residents and their families can receive counseling and spiritual guidance from our chaplain and pastoral staff, and participate in bible studies and other community groups.
Market Place Café
Open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner Monday through Saturday, as well as Sunday brunch, the Market Place Café is one of Bishop Gadsden’s beloved social hubs. With seven dining stations including grilled specialties, “down home” fare, a soup and salad bar, sandwiches, pizza, to-go options, and an ever-changing seasonal station, the café never has a shortage of options.
Located in the Bishop Gadsden’s Trawick Commons, Monday through Saturday, Polly’s Pub offers cocktails and happy hour specials in a beautiful space complete with a large-screen TV and a fireplace. Just off the Pub, Chet’s Porch is the perfect place to enjoy a drink while overlooking Palm Court.

Gadsden Glen’s Estes Community has two dining rooms, one on each floor. The first-floor dining room features fireplaces and floral accents, as well as original Charleston brick salvaged in 2022, while the second-floor’s Johnstone Dining Room evokes the Lowcountry coast. Each space offers breakfast, lunch, and dinner to Estes residents, with abundant selections prepared by a dedicated culinary team.

Both are comfortable and convenient ways for residents to experience Bishop Gadsden’s nationally recognized culinary program.
