Walterboro, SC – Right now Colleton Medical Center has the bed capacity, staffing, supplies, and equipment needed to care for our community. As a part of HCA Healthcare, a connected network of more than 1,800 sites of care, we have access to key resources from across the country.
We can all help our friends and neighbors by not coming to the hospital if we’re suffering from mild symptoms. This will allow hospitals to save supplies for patients that need emergency care.
There is no treatment for COVID-19, and people that are mildly ill are able to self-isolate and recover at home. If you have severe symptoms or are suffering from a medical emergency you should go to the ER or call 911.
