  • Our Emergency Professionals Treat Hundreds Every Day

    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.

  • Trauma Designation Assures Quality and Ready Response

    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.
