Amanda Piolata

To increase the availability of urgent care in Beaufort County and beyond, Beaufort Memorial Express Care & Occupational Health has added another certified physician assistant to its clinical team.

Amanda Piolata, PA-C, brings extensive experience in providing urgent and primary care to both adults and children, having served for five years as a physician assistant at OhioHealth Urgent Care in Gahanna/Reynoldsburg, a suburb of Columbus. 

Earlier she worked in the same capacity at CardioMetabolic Health in nearby Westerville, where before becoming a physician assistant she had been an exercise physiologist. 

The Columbus native earned a Master of Science in Physician Assistant Studies from Ohio Dominican University and a Bachelor of Science in exercise science from The Ohio State University, both in Columbus. 

A longtime fan of the Lowcountry, Piolata began vacationing on Hilton Head Island when she was in the sixth grade. 

At Beaufort Memorial Express Care & Occupational Health, board-certified physicians, physician assistants and nurse practitioners offer care for acute but non-life- or limb-threatening illness and injury. Open seven days a week, including weekday evenings, the practice also provides services to employees of businesses participating in Beaufort Memorial’s Well at Work program.  

The practice has three locations: 1 Burnt Church Road, Bluffton; 122 Okatie Center Blvd. North, Suite 100, Okatie; and 1680 Ribaut Road, Port Royal. To see current walk-in wait times and to save your spot in line, visit
