Whatever the weather, the focus remains the same.
As Hurricane Dorian approaches our region, a wide range of Tidelands Health team members are planning to shelter in place at the health system’s hospitals to support the community’s care needs.
All Tidelands Health hospitals, which were not included in the mandatory medical evacuation order issued by Gov. Henry McMaster Sunday evening, are expected to remain open during Dorian.
Caring for the community during a storm requires involvement from many different people, including physicians, nurses, technicians, support staff and more.
“It’s a tremendous team effort,” says Tidelands Health OB/GYN Dr. Gayle Richmond, chief of the health system’s medical staff. “We are all stepping up as a team.”
