The highly anticipated McLeod Health Carolina Forest Emergency Department has opened its doors to the public.
The new ED is designed with 15 spacious exam rooms with advanced diagnostic equipment, this includes a trauma room, triage room, and other specialized areas. Radiology, including CT, and Lab services are housed within the Emergency Department to expedite a diagnosis. The open floor plan also creates a comfortable environment for patients and their families, and supports efficiency to aid in patient flow.
“McLeod Health is committed to excellence in medical care. We are privileged to continue serving patients and their families throughout Horry County, evident with our investment in the provision of Emergency Services to those residing in the Carolina Forest area,” said Rob Colones, President and CEO of McLeod Health.
The new waiting area is divided into two separate sections, offering a warm and intimate environment for visitors. There is also a private family consult room for providers to meet with family members. Adjacent parking for Emergency Department visitors and patients offers convenience and ease of entry.
“This new Emergency Department accommodates the healthcare demands of our growing area and will provide access to quality healthcare when emergency services are needed,” said Scott Montgomery, McLeod Health administrator. “McLeod Health is dedicated to improving and expanding its services and medical treatment available to families and residents who entrust us with their care. The McLeod Health Carolina Forest Emergency Department is one more step in our promise to offer quality medical care to our community.”
