- Care Services
CareSouth Carolina’s ROADS mobile initiative (Reaching Out and Delivering Services) offers comprehensive, remote medical care to the communities we serve and features three fully-equipped medical exam units staffed with a nurse practitioner, LPN, and medical assistant:
School-Based Health Services
Because many students in rural communities don’t have the opportunity to visit a doctor’s office regularly, CareSouth Carolina brings the care to them. CareSouth Carolina’s mobile units visit six school districts in the Pee Dee every year, providing annual wellness visits and screenings to thousands of students around the area.
The school-based care program began in 2015 with the purpose of providing care to schools in rural communities in the Pee Dee area after the lack of access to such services was identified. The program began with the Chesterfield County School District. Since then, it has expanded to add Lee, Dillon, Marlboro and Darlington Counties to its repertoire.
Mobile ROADS- Provides school-based care for students in 57 schools in five different school districts in the Pee Dee.
Care ROADS- Also provides school-based care, but can be dispatched during natural disasters to provide remote care.
In 2021 CareSouth Carolina began installing and managing telehealth equipment in many of our area schools. Students have the opportunity to have a virtual visit with a nurse practitioner or physician without ever having to leave the school. Unlike the ROADS school based mobiles which are designed for scheduled wellness visits, telehealth services are available on demand, as the need arises, and are designed more for acute, episodic care.
Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT)
Freedom ROADS- Provides remote Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) services on-site at two area addiction treatment agencies weekly for those struggling with substance use disorders.
