Our 24/7 trauma center is fully staffed with board-certified trauma surgeons and a team of experienced professionals. When you come to our hospital, life-saving surgery is available within minutes of arrival.
We care for patients in three dedicated trauma bays in our Emergency Department. Our trauma team includes:
- Board-certified trauma surgeons

The trauma care experts at Grand Strand Medical Center also work closely with emergency medical service providers to deliver coordinated, specialized treatment to patients who need Level I adult and Level II pediatric care.
