medical treatment

We will be spending a week in Edisto in May and have a child with a peanut/tree nut allergy. Wondering how close the nearest hospital is to Edisto in case anything crops up while we are there?

This may be the closest...


There's not much in the way of medical services once you leave Charleston proper. I have been to the ER at this hospital (going from Kiawah) on Christmas Eve several years ago. I looked for Urgent Care, as well and the closest I could find is what's on Kiawah, which would be about as close as the hospital coming from Edisto.

Why not give the fire department a call to find out for sure what services are available?

I believe the closest hospital would be in Charleston, but I don't know for sure. There are paramedics and doctors on Edisto Island though.
