August 14, 2019, Bluffton, S.C. – Earlier this month, leaders from Coastal Carolina Hospital and local elected officials welcomed more than 300 community members to tour Tidewatch ED as part of an open house. As of today, the Tidewatch Emergency Department will be opening to the public.
The 10,000 square foot facility has 12 treatment areas, 24/7 physician coverage, and represents a $15 million investment in the community. The types of acute illnesses and injuries treated at a traditional ER can now be treated at Tidewatch Emergency Department. These include allergic reactions, bone fractures, chest pain, head injuries, seizures, stroke and other urgent medical conditions.
The Emergency Department will also be holding a hiring event from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. Experienced registered nurses looking for an opportunity to work in the free-standing emergency center are encouraged to stop by the Coastal Carolina Hospital–1000 Medical Center Drive, Hardeeville, SC. Eligible nurses may receive an on-the-spot job offer and a sign-on bonus of up to $12,000!
