“Affiliations are not unusual,” stated Rod Boula, AAMC Interim CEO. “Factors such as low reimbursement rates, increased and very complex regulation, reduced patient volumes, and increased amounts of free and reduced cost uncompensated care are affecting both small and large hospitals nationwide.

Through this affiliation, Self Regional will work collaboratively with MUSC Health to advance the expertise of clinical staff via mentoring related the latest technologies and procedures in cardiovascular surgical care.

“She was the kind of case manager who left nothing unturned. As a manager, knowing Tisha was assigned to a patient gave me assurance that the patient and family would have every need met, no matter the cost. She was never afraid to go where she was needed and willingly said yes to anything asked of her. Tisha’s fierce compassion and empathetic heart burned bright, and it’s a light we will never be able to replace.”
