Caring for our communities

Through employment, strategic partnerships, donations and volunteering initiatives, we strive to strengthen the communities where we live and work.

Getting to the heart of stroke

We are proud to partner with the American Heart Association to support this new initiative. In Jacksonville, Florida, this partnership includes providing public education, healthy cooking classes and blood pressure cuffs to people who use 20+ food banks in the area.

Mental wellness program for kids

Our hospitals are sponsoring this digital program in partnership with EVERFI and offering it to schools for free. The goal is to help teens, reduce the stigma associated with mental illness, and empower students to help themselves and others.

The curriculum was developed by counselors, psychiatrists, and behavioral and public health professionals. We currently have 69 active or committed schools participating in the program in 14 counties in SC and GA.

The Lown Institute ranks Colleton Medical Center #1 in SC regarding community benefit. They include charity care spending, community health initiatives and other community benefit spending in their metrics.

Crush the Crisis

HCA Healthcare introduced an enterprise-wide opioid take-back day in 2017 to raise awareness of the dangers of opioid misuse and the importance of safe and proper disposal. Our participating hospitals have partnered with local law enforcement agencies to collect and safely dispose of hundreds of pounds of medication annually.
