2014 Most Wired Hospital
We were named a Most Wired hospital in the 2014 Most Wired Survey and Benchmarking Study published in Hospitals & Health Networks magazine.
This is our 11th consecutive year on the Most Wired list for small and rural hospitals, and the second time we have been named a Most Wired hospital in the nation, a group that includes large hospitals and academic medical centers.
Bedside medication verification system helps ensure patient safety
We are one of a few South Carolina healthcare providers to have scanning devices used at the bedside to help ensure patients receive the proper medication.
Digital Mammography with Tomosynthesis
In both Beaufort and Bluffton we offer digital mammography with same-day results. In our Women's Imaging Center we offer 3-D breast tomosynthesis, the latest technology in breast screening, to provide clearer views of breast tissue and abnormalities. The benefits to patients include:
More accurate detection of benign vs. suspicious breast tissue
Decreased rate of breast biopsies
Greater peace of mind for patients
Robotic Surgery Center
The da Vinci surgical system provides surgeons with an alternative to both traditional open surgery and conventional laparoscopy.
With this robot-assisted technology, doctors can perform surgery through small, dime-sized incisions with unmatched precision.
The benefits can include:
- Significantly less pain
- Less blood loss
- Less scarring
- Shorter recovery time
- Faster return to normal activities
- In many cases, better clinical outcomes
