Grand Strand Medical Center

Grand Strand Medical Center is proud to be the ONLY Level II Trauma Center in Horry and Georgetown counties. Not all hospitals are trauma centers, and not every emergency department can handle every emergency. Unlike an emergency department, a trauma center is a state-verified facility capable of specialized treatment for the most critical injuries. Fully-staffed 24/7 with board-certified trauma surgeons and a team of experienced professionals, life-saving surgery is available within minutes of arrival. Patients are cared for in two dedicated trauma bays in our Emergency Department. The board-certified trauma surgeons are supported by our experienced emergency medicine physicians, trauma orthopedic surgeon, neurosurgeons, specially trained critical care and emergency nurses and other trauma trained professionals. The trauma care experts at Grand Strand Medical Center also work closely with their partners in the field — emergency medical service providers — to deliver coordinated, specialized treatment to patients who need Level II care.
