Emergency Preparedness

South Carolina’s hospitals care for people at all times and under all conditions. From natural disasters to human-made crises, our patients count on us to be prepared and ready to provide the highest quality of care to those most in need.

To ensure that hospitals have the information and support they need to prepare and weather disasters of all kinds, SCHA serves as a 24-hour operation center during times of emergency. We help support Hospital Emergency Managers as they provide for the safety of patients, staff and visitors during emergency incidents.
