Convenient, accessible health care is important for everyone. That’s why Tidelands Health is seeking state approval to build Tidelands Health Carolina Bays Hospital, a 36-bed hospital to be located at the interchange of Highways 31 and 707.
More than 100,000 people have moved to the Myrtle Beach area in the past eight years, and another 275,000 people are projected to move to Horry County by 2040. Tidelands Health, as our region’s largest health care provider and MUSC Health affiliate, is committed to growing with our community -- providing access to high-quality, compassionate health care just as we’ve done for more than 70 years.
According to SC DHEC’s 2020 South Carolina Health Plan, there is a need for an additional 155 hospital beds in Horry County to meet community need. Pending state approval, Tidelands Health Carolina Bays Hospital will include 36 medical-surgical beds, an emergency department, four operating suites, diagnostic imaging, laboratory services and more.
An estimated 140 professionals will be employed at opening of the new hospital, helping to strengthen the area's economy.
Our next step is to file a certificate of need application with SC DHEC for state approval to build Tidelands Health Carolina Bays Hospital. And we need your help!
