“We are fortunate to be able to help local organizations that do so much good for the community,” said Dr. David Isenhower, Chief Medical Informatics Officer at Self Regional Healthcare. “It’s a testament to their hard work and dedication to receive these grants thatallow them to expand their services and benefit more people in need.”
Advanced ICU Care’s and MUSC’s team of intensivists and critical care nurses work around-the-clock complementing the care provided by the Self Regional physicians. The program continuously monitors patient vital signs, medications, labs and clinical status.
These announcements come just months after the two healthcare organizations entered into an affiliation agreement that was designed to enhance and improve healthcare services available in Edgefield County. That agreement established a long-term, collaborative relationship between the two hospitals and opened the way for joint projects like this medical office building.
Winners of the award posses a caring attitude and respect for patients, residents and students; value human dignity; and demonstrate a passion for teaching, working with others and participating in community service activities.
Self Regional Healthcare’s Community Health Committee presented Healthy Learners Greenwood with $50,000 after the local organization applied for a grant in January 2016.
For eleven years, Healthy Learners Greenwood has increased access to health care services for children who are in need and without resources. The organization addresses a fundamental need in the community to improve early access and appropriate use of non-emergency health care services by providing the necessary resource for children and families.
“This program is beneficial to our community because it provides transportation to medical appointments for children who usually are not able to find a ride elsewhere,” said Dr. David Isenhower, Chief Medical Informatics Officer at Self Regional Healthcare. “Children need health and dental care and Healthy Learners is really doing a wonderful job of helping children in our community receive that care.”
Healthy Learners addresses identified unmet health needs of school children through coordination of care with the school nurse, parent and local provider partners to assure the health need is met. Healthy Learners also provides transportation for children that face transportation as a barrier to receiving health care. Costs for eligible health care services, transportation and follow-up are paid for by Healthy Learners.
Healthy Learners’ vision is that all children are healthy and able to reach their full potential. In the 2016-17 school year, Healthy Learners will be providing services to all eligible school aged children in Greenwood School Districts 50, 51 and 52.
Healthy Learners Greenwood is located at 211 North Main Street, Greenwood, SC 29646. To reach one of their representatives please call 864-953-2350.
