ER at Sweetwater Now Offering Outpatient Services

ER at Sweetwater has been delivering emergency care since August 2022 and now offers outpatient services in the same convenient setting. ER at Sweetwater will continue to provide emergency care 24-hours a day, seven days a week for all ages and is located off I-20 Exit 5 at 160 Austin Graybill Road, North Augusta, SC 29860. 

Patients now have access to a full-service laboratory and imaging onsite with X-ray and computerized tomography (CT) imaging in an outpatient setting. CT imaging includes the following:

  • CT Imaging: A scan used to visualize internal body parts to diagnose disease or injury or plan for treatment.
  • Cardiac CT Calcium Scoring: A quick, painless and noninvasive test to measure calcium levels in the heart vessels for those considered at intermediate or high risk for heart disease.
  • CT Low-Dose Lung Cancer Screening: To help detect lung cancer in its earliest and most treatable stages for those considered at high risk.

Outpatient services are available for non-emergent lab, X-ray and CT imaging services 24 hours a day, seven days a week, with a physician’s order. If one’s health insurance company requires prior authorization for CT imaging, please call 803-641-5808.

“Since early discussions, the strategic plan for the ER at Sweetwater was to offer emergency services and add outpatient services,” said Matt Merrifield, Chief Executive Officer of Aiken Regional Medical Centers. “We’re excited to continue to fulfill the mission of our organization by offering easier access to healthcare, all while making a positive impact on the health of our local community.”

Most insurances are accepted including Medicare and Medicaid.
