CEO's Message

Message from Our Interim President & CEO:

Welcome to Regional Medical Center’s (RMC) website. We appreciate your interest in our people (your neighbors) who provide our region with needed health care services. We know you have a choice in who takes care of you and your family and hope you will give us an opportunity to earn your trust.

We are the only acute care medical center in this part of the Palmetto state between Charleston and Columbia. RMC’s health care system includes a 286-bed acute care hospital with a full service Emergency room, a Level III Trauma Center, Fast Track and Express care units and 23 primary and specialty care practices in Orangeburg, Calhoun, Bamberg and Barnwell counties. The new Bamberg/Barnwell Emergency Medical Center provides round-the-clock emergency care, including diagnostic imaging (CT scan, X-Ray and ultrasound), laboratory, observation and emergency transport services. Our mission is to deliver high quality and compassionate care to every patient we have the privilege of caring for. We specialize in treating those conditions our region suffers from the most: cardiovascular disease, stroke, diabetes, cancer, and obesity among others. Our maternity care is award winning and Her Place is designated as a Blue Distinction® Center+ by BlueCross BlueShield.

As an advanced surgical hospital, RMC also offers Mako robotic surgery for joint replacement, a DaVinci robotic surgical system for urologic, gynecologic and general surgery plus state-of-the-art diagnostic modalities including 3-D digital mammography, MRI, and PET/CT. Regional. The comprehensive Mabry Center for Cancer Care provides advanced outpatient treatment options as a part of our affiliation with Duke Radiation Oncology. Our Dialysis Access Center is internationally renowned for excellence in the treatment of patients with end-stage renal disease, and our Vascular Center is accredited by the Inter-Societal Accreditation Commission (IAC) for vascular laboratories, demonstrating the highest level of expertise in the early detection and treatment of life-threatening vascular diseases.

RMC is a special place. We strive to offer patients and their loved ones an experience that blends the warmth and traditional values of a community hospital with the leading-edge clinical care once thought to be found exclusively in large metropolitan areas. No longer do patients in our region have to travel long distances to receive great care – because RMC is bringing it to them right here locally.

Thank you, again, for visiting our website. We hope you will consider RMC for your health care needs. From the expertise of our clinicians to the compassion and kindness of our staff, I think you will be very pleased with the level of care you receive here.
