Colleton Medical Center CEO, Jimmy Hiott said, “We are thankful that our COVID-19 cases have decreased to a point that we can safely extend our visitation policy.” Hiott added, “Our ability to maintain the extended hours is contingent on maintaining a low number of COVID-19 cases. Should we see a rise in COVID-19 cases Colleton Medical Center will revert back to the COVID-19 visitation policy for the safety of our patients and staff.”
