Scotland Health Care System is growing as evidenced by the recent expansion of our Emergency Center and renovations to our Surgical Wing and Women's Services Center. We've enhanced our medical technology by performing coronary interventions (placement of stents) at our Scotland Cardiovascular Center right here in Laurinburg, offering 3D mammography to catch breast cancer earlier, and implementing the Telestroke program by providing care to stroke patients locally.
