Hilton Head Regional Healthcare Celebrates 45 Years of CareSep 3, 2020
Hilton Head Regional Healthcare is celebrating 45 years of care in the Lowcountry this August.
“In 1975, when Hilton Head Hospital was first built, our community was small, rural and home to suburban neighborhoods, families and residents,” said Jeremy Clark, Market Chief Executive Officer of Hilton Head Regional Healthcare. “Over the past four and a half decades, our region has grown tremendously, and we have met the healthcare needs of our expanding community year-over-year by adding new physicians, procedures, technologies, services and locations.”
“We have a lot to be proud of as we reflect on our history,” continued Clark. “What started as a 40-bed community hospital has now transformed into a healthcare system with numerous unique services and locations. I believe there are very few 150-bed health systems that offer a cardiovascular surgery program, a 24/7 OB laborist model, minimally invasive spine and orthopedic surgery, inpatient behavioral health and the latest in robotic surgery for urologic, gynecologic and general surgery.”
“We’ve weathered many storms including hurricanes, tornadoes, and now, the COVID-19 pandemic,” concluded Clark. “Our colleagues have consistently shown compassion, strength and courage. As we continue moving forward, I am extremely excited about where we’re headed. We were the first healthcare system to serve residents on Hilton Head Island and we will continue to proudly serve the Lowcountry as it grows for many years to come.”
