Monday 9/11, 3 p.m. update:

Out of an abundance of caution for our employees and patients, we are closing all of our locations at 6 p.m. tonight to allow for safe travel home. We anticipate full hours of operations for nearly all locations tomorrow, with the exception of a few Lowcountry centers. Per the current evacuation orders still in place by Governor McMaster for Jasper, Beaufort and Colleton Counties, our Hilton Head Island, Beaufort and Bluffton locations will remain closed until further notice. Please check back here for updated information, or call our toll free number before you decide to visit one of our locations (888-843-3719).  Stay safe out there!

Sunday 9/10, 3 p.m. update:

After discussing with management teams, we will be closing the entire Lowcountry region on Monday, September 11th. Sustained winds of 35 mph with gusts up to 60 mph, 5-8 inches of rain, and tornado warnings have led to concern for the safety of staff travel.

All offices will have regular hours Tuesday, with the exception of Hilton Head, which will remain closed (island closed until 10 am on Tuesday). Beaufort may have abbreviated hours, and Bluffton may close due to provider shortage.

Saturday 9/9, 8 p.m. update:

Per Governor McMaster’s order of mandatory evacuation, our clinics in Hilton Head, Beaufort and Bluffton will be closed on Saturday, 9/9, and Sunday, 9/10. Additional closings could be announced or prolonged.

Please keep your families safe and communicate with your local operations team regarding closures. This situation could change at any time. If weather or traffic conditions make it unsafe for you to get to work, please stay home or in a safe place, and notify your operations and management teams (UCI staff please communicate with your center managers and ROMs, providers please communicate with your RMDs). A large risk still exists for significant travel/traffic issues in the Lowcountry.  If we are able to do so, we will safely open to serve the communities in which we operate.
