About Coronavirus – COVID-19

We’re here for you, your family and our community.

Piedmont Medical Center is honored to have been vaccinating frontline and community healthcare workers and physicians, as well as seniors 70 years of age and older in accordance with SC DHEC’s current Phase 1a Vaccination Plan. 

We are working with state and local leaders to plan for continued community vaccinations, and we will keep everyone informed as more vaccine doses become available to us. Please refer to our hospital website and Facebook page periodically for updates.

Our COVID SAFE Standards

COVID SAFE standards are built upon deep clinical expertise from previous crises and on-going management of COVID-19, as well as continuous incorporation of CDC, CMS and State recommendations. They are a rigorous combination of infection prevention processes, training, testing, personal protective equipment and technology. Our COVID SAFE standards includes six components:
  • Distinct COVID SAFE and COVID CARE Zones – separate areas with clear signage and protocols
  • Rigorous Physician and Staff Protocols – daily screening, universal masking and access to PPE
  • Heightened Sanitization – enhanced cleaning of surfaces and plenty of hand sanitization stations
  • Access to COVID-19 Testing – in-house, rapid testing for patients, physician and staff who require it
  • Precautions for Patients and Visitors – provision of face masks, hand sanitizer and physical distancing
  • Enhanced Virtual Access – virtual care, remote monitoring and connectivity with loved ones

Additional Precautions

  • All outside groups and other events are canceled until further notice.
  • Entry into care sites is being limited. Anyone who enters will be screened carefully and requested to sanitize their hands.
  • Valet services are currently closed.
Protocols continue to adapt in real-time to follow federal and local health agency guidelines.

As A Community Built on Care, we are here for you when you need us. For more information about novel coronavirus, go to the CDC website.
