Agricultural workers often have a high occurrence of diabetes, high blood pressure, skin disorders, dental needs and more. At LRMC, we offer a full range of services for our local migrant and seasonal agricultural workers (MSAW).
We provide medical care for adults and children, dental services, and behavioral health. Pharmacy services are available at our sites in Little River and Carolina Forest.
In addition, we offer assistance with transportation, translation/interpretation, and social services referrals.
Who qualifies for these services?
MSAWs and their families qualify for these services. Only MSAWs employed in the direct farming of seasonal crops are eligible.
A migrant agricultural worker is someone whose principal employment is seasonal agricultural work and who moves to temporary housing to seek this work.
A seasonal agricultural worker is an individual whose employment is in agriculture on a seasonal basis and who does not establish a temporary home for the purposes of employment.
How do I sign up?
We will need a letter from the owner or supervisor from the farm where you work. You can then go to any one of our sites and complete a new patient application. To schedule a medical or dental appointment, please call 843.663.8000 and press 1 for a scheduling representative.
