In a millisecond and without warning, an accident or injury can alter a person’s life forever. The full range of emergency services at McLeod represents immediate, experienced care when you need it most. Cardiology and neurology support services, dedicated medical intensive care and surgical intensive care stand ready to respond at all of our hospitals from the Midlands to the Coast.
While in the emergency waiting room, you may have noticed patients who arrived after you were brought back to a room before you. Please understand when this occurs, it is only because staff are trying to expedite everyone’s visit. Minor illnesses and injuries (like nausea, sprains/strains) may be treated in a separate area of the Emergency Department, which has its own dedicated staffing. At any time, the staff may be redirected to treat a patient with a life-threatening condition, which may increase your wait.
As a state-designated “Level II Trauma Center,” the McLeod Regional Emergency Department in Florence meets or exceeds requirements for staffing, specialist availability, response times, training and quality improvement. Our team includes neurosurgeons, neurologists, general surgeons, trauma surgeons, orthopedic trauma surgeons, pediatric intensivists for the McLeod Children’s Hospital, oral and maxillofacial surgeons, and plastic and reconstructive surgeons.
