News for Immediate Release:
All appeals have been resolved, and Tidelands Health is now clear to proceed with the development of Tidelands Health Carolina Bays Hospital, a 36-bed acute-care hospital to be conveniently located at the interchange of Highways 31 and 707 in rapidly growing south Horry County.
Upon completion, Tidelands Health Carolina Bays Hospital will offer a broad array of advanced medical and surgical services, including a heart care institute and open-heart surgery program operated in partnership with MUSC Health. The Carolina Bays campus will also be home to Tidelands Health Extended Care Hospital, a 24-bed long-term acute care hospital, and a new, 36-bed location of Tidelands Health Rehabilitation Hospital, an affiliate of Encompass Health – both of which have already received final approval.
“Horry County is home to the nation’s fastest-growing area, and the need for additional health care is clear,” said Bruce Bailey, Tidelands Health president and CEO. “As our region’s largest health care provider and MUSC Heath affiliate, Tidelands Health is committed to improving access to high-quality, compassionate health and wellness services for all those who call the Grand Strand home.”
With state certificates of need for the acute-care hospital, extended care hospital and inpatient rehabilitation hospital in hand, work now turns to permitting, architectural design and construction. Tidelands Health Carolina Bays Hospital is tentatively projected to open in 2028.
“Since we first began serving our community in 1950, our health system has been guided by a singular mission to help people live better lives through better health,” Bailey said. “As Tidelands Health Carolina Bays Hospital, Tidelands Health Extended Care Hospital and Tidelands Health Rehabilitation Hospital become reality, we look forward to expanding needed health care services that we know will improve health and save lives.”
