South Central Regional Medical Center Emergency Department


It was a Saturday night when Gene and Karon Pickering drove back to Laurel from their grandson’s basketball tournament and sat down for dinner when they realized something just wasn’t right with Gene. Within minutes of Gene arriving at South Central’s Emergency Department, the medical team determined that he was having a stroke and gave him a life-saving clot buster shot.
