If you think you may be experiencing a medical emergency, immediately call your doctor or 911.
When you or a loved one experience a medical emergency and need to go to the ER, you want to be assured the highest level of medical care. You also want to make sure you get treated as quickly as possible. At Colleton Medical Center, our emergency room in Walterboro, South Carolina offers our community the highest level of ER care in the region.
We recently renovated our 20-bed emergency room to better accommodate our patients’ needs. Due to Colleton Medical Center’s proximity to the interstate, our ER is always easily accessible. Our emergency room services are linked to EMS, allowing for immediate response to any medical emergency.
Our physicians and nursing staff not only provide skilled medical care, but also give comfort and support to patients and their families during a medical crisis.
ER Wait Times
As part of our commitment to keep ER wait times short, we developed a “Fast Track” service to expedite care of patients who are not acutely ill. Our ER staff has also incorporated cardiac monitoring units, for fast and early diagnosis of heart disease and other cardiology conditions.
We broadcast our ER wait time on our website so you can make an informed decision about where to get the fastest medical attention.
Our ER wait time is calculated by a four-hour rolling average updated every 30 minutes and is defined as the time of patient arrival until the time the patient is greeted by a qualified medical professional.
ER wait times are approximate and provided for informational purposes only. If you are having a medical emergency, call 911.
Pediatric ER Services
Not every patient is the same, which is why our ER staff is trained to pay special attention to the needs of our youngest guests. When you bring your child to our emergency room, we will do our best to get them treated as soon as possible by a specialist. We also try to make sure all of our young patients feel comfortable and secure, no matter what their condition.
You can trust the pediatric experts in our ER to give your child the highest level of care in the region.
