“These organizations are vital to the health of many people in our community and we are privileged to be able to provide grants to them,” said Selynto Anderson, Community Prevention & Wellness Services Manager at Self Regional Healthcare.
“The proceeds from the Women’s Health Classic will help our hospital continue to provide exceptional care to women in our community,” said Courtney Furman, chairman of the Self Regional Healthcare Foundation Board of Trustees.
Jim Pfeiffer, president and CEO of Self Regional Healthcare, said “while much has changed on this campus, one thing that has remained constant over the last 65 years is this institution’s commitment to the healthcare needs of Greenwood and the Lakelands region. Today we pay tribute to Mr. James C. Self Jr.; whose generosity built Self Memorial Hospital after a tornado severely damaged the original hospital structure. Philanthropy built this hospital and philanthropy has never been more important to ensuring our future.”
Cervical disc replacements are performed to relieve chronic pain from nerve pressure in the neck. A problematic disc is removed from the patient’s spinal column and an artificial disc is then put in its place. During a 2 level procedure, two offending discs are replaced using synthetic cervical discs, in this case the BRYAN™ device, manufactured by Medtronic.
Self Regional Healthcare is extending its Home Health services into Edgefield County
Individuals who serve on the Self Regional Healthcare Board of Trustees possess a varied skillset and a gift for civic leadership. The group is entrusted with choosing the best strategic course for the organization and for the future of healthcare in the region.
The donation is a series of multi-year gifts given by the EATON Corporation to benefit Self Regional Healthcare.
“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.
