CEO Message

Joel C. Taylor

On behalf of our physicians, dedicated colleagues, and caring volunteers, I welcome you to the Hilton Head Regional Healthcare Website.

Since I have been in the Lowcountry, I have been impressed with the extraordinary men and women who have dedicated their lives to the tremendous responsibility of delivering quality health care to each patient who enters our doors at Hilton Head Hospital, Coastal Carolina Hospital, the Bluffton Medical Campus, the Tidewatch Emergency Department and Bluffton-Oaktie Outpatient Center. I am so proud of their efforts in successfully serving the needs of our patients and working to improve the health and well-being of our entire community.

We offer a wide range of inpatient and outpatient services including high-level services such as open heart surgery, advanced robotic technology including the daVinci robot, used to perform minimally invasive surgical procedures and CORI surgical technology, used to enhance precision and accuracy for surgeons performing knee implants. Obstetrical services include a 24/7 in house obstetrician, a soon-to-open Level 2 NICU at Coastal Carolina, and labor, delivery and postpartum.

While our most important reward is improving the health of you and your family, we are also honored to have been recognized by many organizations for the exceptional care we provide, including the Leapfrog Group, The South Carolina Hospital Association, Healthgrades, and more.

If it has been a while since you have visited us, I invite you to come by and see what we have to offer. We are dedicated to providing you with local, comprehensive healthcare services so you never have to travel very far to get the specialized care you need.

Our patients and their families are our No. 1 priority, so please feel free to contact me or any member or staff if you have questions or concerns or need help using any of our services. I can be reached in the Administration Office at 843-689-8206.
