AnMed Health is preparing to accept 11 patients from Grand Strand Medical Center in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. The evacuees are expected to arrive after 7:30 this evening depending on the traffic. They will be accommodated on a non-critical care unit. Their length of stay is dependent on the weather conditions of hurricane Florence.
Other evacuees, finding refuge in the area, who have non-emergency medical needs, may contact the Department Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) to find out about a special medical needs shelter. The DHEC care line number is 1-855-472-3432.
Evacuees, who need dialysis treatment and have not made previous arrangements, should also call the DHEC care line number at 1-855-472-3432 to get directed to an area dialysis clinic.
AnMed Health is happy to provide the same top-notch care to the evacuees that it provides its area patients daily,” said Shaunda Trotter, vice president of nursing/chief nursing officer.
