Tidelands Health to serve as official medical provider for Hurricane Florence Benefit Concert in Myrtle Beach

Concertgoers who flock to the upcoming Hurricane Florence Benefit Concert to support Horry County flooding victims will themselves be supported by the team at Tidelands Health.

Tidelands Health is the official medical provider for the concert, which is scheduled for Nov. 11 at Field at Pelicans Ballpark, home of the Myrtle Beach Pelicans. Physicians and nurses from the health system will join with local law enforcement, fire departments, EMS personnel and stadium officials to help ensure robust medical care is available for concert attendees.

“So many people have lost so much as a result of Hurricane Florence,” said Bruce Bailey, president and CEO of Tidelands Health. “We’re honored to support this event and help in the recovery efforts.”Man playing guitar

Care providers with Tidelands Health will be on site at the concert to manage minor illnesses and injuries, such as cuts, sprains, strains and more.

Individuals who suffer serious medical emergencies will be immediately transported off site by emergency medical personnel stationed at the concert.

“I am truly grateful to Tidelands Health for their support of our Hurricane Florence Relief Concert,” said Myrtle Beach Mayor Brenda Bethune. “So many in our neighboring communities have been devastated by the floods associated with Florence and this concert will certainly give them much-needed assistance.

“Tidelands Health has been a generous contributor in our community and I am honored to work beside them to make this benefit a true success.”

So far, six acts have been announced for the Nov. 11 concert. Country musicians Michael Ray, Chase Bryant and Carly Pearce are slated to perform, along with Love and Theft, The Swon Brothers and the Davisson Brothers Band.

Tickets range from $50 to $200. Group suites are available for $7,500. Food and beverages are included in the price of the suite tickets.

Proceeds benefit the Eastern South Carolina Chapter of the American Red Cross and the Area Recovery Council of the Waccamaw Community Foundation.
