AnMed Health to accept eleven patients from Grand Strand


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.
