So happy my wife and I had our baby boy at Waccamaw. The nurses and doctors were very caring and kept us up to date on the info Andy made us very comfortable. I have been so anxious about the birth because our last son was born at Grand strand regional and it was a nightmare. Grand strand is not a good choice and not baby friendly.
Thank you all so much!!! ❤️❤️❤️🙏🙏🙏👍👍👍

I am a 100% P&T Disabled Vietnam Vet, so my primary insurer is the Veterans Administration (VA). The VA WILL pay 100% of my ER visits. This is an established fact, yet Tidelands Waccamaw policy is that they DON'T bill VA as primary.
Instead, they billed Medicare, leaving me a $300.00 co-pay. Hurricane Florence was quite expensive for me, so naturally I have contested Tidelands policy for several months, from their Accounting Dept to the CEO.
Their response was to turn my account over to a collection agency, so gotta say, this uncaring organization is all about their convenience, not mine.
Absolutely the WORST hospital visit my husband and I have ever encountered. We were from out of town on vacation. He fell and hurt his leg and the next day got bitten by an insect and things got worse. Decided to come to this hospital and it went down hill from there. The triage nurse was RUDE!!! She asked my husband a question then as he was speaking in the middle of his sentence shoved a thermometer in his mouth. When we got back into a room, we waited 1 hour and NO ONE came in!!! Nurses walking around, giggling, talking and not even offering to come and at least take his vitals. We spoke to another patients family and they had been waiting 3 hours and no one had come in!!!!! HORRIBLE HORRIBLE HORRIBLE!!!! Save your time and money and go else where!!!
Recently visited the ER with my husband. It was with great trepidation that I did so because of all the negative reviews on this site. If Charleston wasn't 2 hours away I probably would have gone there. I am glad we didn't go to Charleston. We were in and out within 6 hours. In that time period tests were completed, results were in, medications were administered, and the doctor spent time with us to answer our questions. The staff and nurse were helpful and efficient. On the way home I remarked that it is good to have a facility like that so close to home. So, to all of you who have had a bad experience, I am sorry for you. To those who may be contemplating a trip to this facility be assured that you can have a good experience here. We will be back if the necessity arises sometime in the future.
The doctor I met about a possible blood clot was very kind...got me in right away the nurse that did my blood work was fantastic. For the most part all the tests were fairly quick...definatly recommend!
