Dr. Michael Kaup

After three decades of emergency medicine practice on Hilton Head Island, Michael R. Kaup, M.D. has joined Beaufort Memorial Express Care & Occupational Health. At the walk-in clinics, the board-certified emergency medicine specialist treats minor illness and injury in adult and pediatric patients of all ages. 

Broadly experienced in his specialty, Dr. Kaup came to Beaufort Memorial from Hilton Head Hospital, where he served for 30 years in the hospital’s emergency room. During his long tenure there, the well-known doctor and one-time ER medical director likely treated most of the island’s residents, and many of its visitors, at one time or another.

“It is a great pleasure to welcome Dr. Kaup to the skilled Express Care medical team,” said Russell Baxley, president and CEO at Beaufort Memorial. “Patients seeking care for urgent non-life-threatening conditions will surely benefit from his expertise, dedication and wealth of community knowledge.”  

At Beaufort Memorial Express Care & Occupational Health, board-certified physicians, physician assistants and nurse practitioners offer care for acute but non-life-threatening illness and injury. 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, Okatie; and 1680 Ribaut Road, Port Royal. Walk-ins are welcome at all three Express Care locations. To see current wait times and to save your spot in line, visit BeaufortMemorial.org/ExpressCare.
