Our Services

Trident Health System offers 24-hour emergency care at Trident, Summerville, Colleton, and Moncks Corner Medical Centers. Trident's Level II Emergency Department and Summerville’s Level III Emergency Department each treat more than 40,000 patients annually; Moncks Corner Medical Center, which opened in May of 2001, sees more than 12,000 patients annually. And the new Centre Pointe EMERGENCY, which opened in October, 2014, is expected to treat more than 12,000 patients in its first year of existence.

Trident also functions as a Level II Trauma Center. All four emergency departments employ board-certified emergency medicine physicians, with 24-hour availability of radiologists, subspecialty physicians and lab personnel for diagnostic procedures.

Typical patients range from those with chest pain, trauma, or abdominal pain to those with headaches or stroke. Emergency Services at Trident and Summerville Medical Centers both offer "Fast Track" services for expedient care of patients less acutely ill; Chest Pain Observation Units, for fast and early diagnosis of heart disease; as well as advanced technology and expertise to treat severely injured and critically ill patients.

Moncks Corner Medical Center offers the only private ER suites in Moncks Corner. The newest emergency department, Centre Pointe EMERGENCY, is conveniently and centrally located near Tanger Outlets and the North Charleston Coliseum.

All emergency departments services are linked to and served by EMS, allowing for immediate response to any disaster in the community requiring expert emergency care. For more information, please contact Trident Consult-A-Nurse at (843) 797-FIND.
