Tidelands Georgetown Memorial Hospital to resume largely normal operations Monday

Tidelands Georgetown Memorial Hospital, which has continued to offer emergency care as floodwaters rose throughout the region, will resume largely normal operations at 8 a.m. on Monday.

Throughout the recent flooding event, operations have continued without interruption at Tidelands Waccamaw Community Hospital, Tidelands Health Rehabilitation Hospital and Tidelands Health outpatient locations.

At Tidelands Georgetown, flooding threatened to impact the sewer station that serves the hospital, prompting a relocation of inpatients to Tidelands Waccamaw for their continued comfort and care. The Tidelands Georgetown emergency department continued to serve the community throughout the event.

With the threat of flooding diminished and the sewer station fully operational, Tidelands Georgetown will return to largely normal operations Monday. Elective procedures and appointments originally set for Monday but rescheduled due to flooding will take place at the later, rescheduled date.

“The Tidelands Health team has once again demonstrated our collective will to continue serving the community in the face of significant challenge,” said Bruce Bailey, president and CEO. “Not only do we thank our team members for their commitment, but also we offer our gratitude to our community partners and agencies who have supported our health system and continue to serve the region in the face of Hurricane Florence and the ensuing flooding.

“Our prayers are with everyone who has been impacted by these extremely challenging events.”
