Keeping the community safe:

Self Regional Healthcare urges everyone to heed CDC guidance on handwashing, physical distancing and masks, and encourage the same among your friends and family members. These practices will save lives. 

COVID-19 Symptoms: fever, cough, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing

If you have these symptoms: Lakelands residents, call the COVID-19 Screening Line at (864) 725-8200. You will be asked a series of questions and advised accordingly.

Protect yourself and others. The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to the virus in the first place. You can carry the virus to others even without ever feeling sick yourself.

  • Wash your hands thoroughly with soap, and often.
  • Wear a mask in public, one that covers your mouth and nose, even if you don’t feel sick.
  • Practice “social distancing.” Avoid face-to-face interaction with other people as much as possible. If you can, stay home. Move meetings, classes, book club and other in-person gatherings online. If you must be around other people, keep a recommended six feet distance between you and others and wear a mask. Even if you don’t feel sick, cover your mouth with the inside of your elbow for coughs and sneezes.
  • If you do feel sick, stay home. Call your doctor or the SRH Coronavirus Screening Line (864) 725-8200 for guidance.
  • If you’d like to be tested, see our Self Regional COVID-19 testing info page for current info on how to set up an appointment.

Due to impending inclement weather, the COVID-19 testing line and Vaccine Clinic may be on a delay or closed on Tuesday, January 18. Please continue checking this page for up-to-date information on closures and delays.

Visitor Policy and Restrictions

Beginning Wednesday, 1/11/22 we will implement an expansion to the Visitation Policy which will allow visitors more access to visits with their family members and loved ones, while still continuing to safeguard patients, guests and team members. For details, click here.

COVID-19 Testing

Demand for COVID-19 testing is very high at this time, and we are experiencing longer than usual wait times at our drive-through testing site (303 West Alexander Ave.), at our Express Medical Care Greenwood and Express Medical Care Laurens offices and on our (864) 725-8200 COVID-19 registration phone line.

The quickest and most efficient way to schedule COVID testing at Self Regional is to use the MyChart app on your mobile or desktop device.

If you require assistance setting up your MyChart account, please call (864) 725-2737.

If you choose to visit Express Medical Care (the Greenwood or Laurens office), please be aware that we may not be able to see you immediately. If so, we will inform you of the next available time slot and have you return at that time.

This will help us minimize your time in our waiting room and minimize your risk of exposure.

Emergency Room Wait Times

The Self Regional Healthcare Emergency Room is experiencing very high volume right now due to COVID-19, and wait times for non-emergent cases are quite long. Please remember that we have both Urgent Care and Virtual Care options that are convenient and effective for weekend and after-hours care.

We often see many patients visiting our Emergency Room for non-emergent, minor complaints (like colds, rash, minor injuries, etc.) that would be more appropriate for Virtual or Urgent Care.  If you think you may have an emergency medical condition (like heart attack, stroke, loss of consciousness, etc.) you should  come to the ER.  Otherwise, please consider other care options.

COVID-19 Vaccinations Moving Back to Support Services Center

Beginning Monday, 9/13/2021, the SRH COVID-19 vaccination clinic will relocate to the Self Regional Support Services Center located at 104 Wells Ave. COVID-19 testing will remain at the drive-through location at 303 West Alexander Avenue.
Our hope is that this move will not only reduce the wait time at the drive-through, but also help us prepare for the potential large demand for booster shots in the coming weeks.

Vaccination Clinic hours will be M-F, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. Individuals must call 725-8200 to pre-register and schedule a vaccination appointment.
