MUSC and Roper St. Francis Healthcare announced closings in preparation for Hurricane Dorian.

MUSC will close its Health clinics today, Sept. 4. Roper Hospital Diagnostics and ER – Northwoods, which is in the evacuation zone, will close at 7 p.m. on Tuesday. RSF Express Care and Physician Partners will also be closed.

Luckily for those in need, they are offering free virtual care. South Carolina residents can receive this service until Hurricane Dorian has passed by using the offer code DORIAN on Roper St. Francis’ website or MUSCDORIAN on MUSC’s website.

Virtual care is a feature offered by both of these medical institutions that allows for video-calls with a medical professional.

According to MUSC spokesperson Heather Woolwine, no determination has been made on when clinics will reopen.
