In compliance with Governor McMaster’s medical evacuation order and for the safety of our patients and staff, the ER at Grand Strand Medical Center temporarily closed today at 8 am.

“In light of the mandatory medical evacuation, we are required to close our emergency room,” said Dr. Andrew Schwartz, Chief Medical Officer for Grand Strand Health. “We urge our community to be safe and cautious during this time. We will reopen as quickly as we possibly can following the storm.” Updates and storm safety tips will be posted on our Facebook page.

Grand Strand Medical Center is also actively in the process of evacuating patients. Family members who are seeking information on where their loved one has been transferred to can call our Family Reunification phone line at 844-582-2350.
