Healthcare in South Carolina

16% of South Carolina’s population is uninsured. The average hospital bill per day for the uninsured can be as much as $1,557. The most common reason people in South Carolina head to the emergency room is not because of injury, it is usually due to stomach pain or chest pain. The high rate of people seeking emergency care for chest pain is directly related to the high instance of obesity among residents.

Urgent Care in South Carolina

Some South Carolina emergency rooms boast that patients typically experience a two-hour wait, half that of the national average. However those two hours could seem like an eternity to someone in pain. South Carolina's urgent care centers ease the congestion on clogged emergency departments by dealing with non-urgent and non-life threatening conditions with minimal wait times and charges. This excellent service is reliably delivered without the need for appointments.

Urgent care facilities have extended hours on week nights, so patients don’t have to alter their schedules in order to be seen. Convenient weekend hours mean quick and quality care is always available. Urgent Care facilities cater to patients with and without insurance, and a visit to urgent care costs far less than a trip to the emergency room.

The readily available and affordable healthcare found at Urgent Care facilities can offer preventative and consistent care, reducing the poor health quality of South Carolina Residents.

Specific urgent care and walk-in clinic services available in may include STD testing flu shots, school physicals and many other valuable services

    Have absolutely no hesitation to go to Regional’s Immediate Care Center - Eastside. I have been there three times and am thoroughly impressed. I have NEVER had to wait. Every time I have been there I have been cordially greeted and efficiently processed. They have all my medical records from the Regional Hospital system, including all of my insurance information. I don’t even have to show my insurance cards. I simply sign in, and am ushered directly to an examining room. Within minutes someone comes in to review why I have come and to take my vitals. In less than 10 minutes later, the Dr. comes in. Today, my doctor was Dr. Arndt—delightful personality and professional demeanor. He checked my problem, talked with me about it, answered all my questions even without my having to ask, sent a Rx to my pharmacy, wished me well, and bid me goodbye. I began signing in at 2:00 on the dot and was walking out at 2:32. I can’t beat this kind of service ANYWHERE!!!!!
