Tidelands Health to continue serving community during flooding

Tidelands Health will continue to serve the community in the coming days even as historic flooding is forecast for Georgetown and Horry counties.

Flooding is not projected to impact Tidelands Waccamaw Community Hospital, and operations at the hospital will continue as normal. Most Tidelands Health outpatient locations and physician offices will also continue regular operations.

Although floodwaters are not projected to reach Tidelands Georgetown Memorial Hospital facilities, the sewer station that supports the hospital will be impacted. As a result, inpatients at the hospital will be relocated to Tidelands Waccamaw for their comfort and continued care.

The emergency department at the Georgetown hospital will remain open throughout the flooding event.

Area residents can monitor tidelandshealth.org and the Tidelands Health Facebook page for the latest information.
