In 2011, the HSC agencies involved with health care services in Georgetown County formed a collaborative to inventory health care resources in our community, identify service gaps and redundancies and develop strategies to close those gaps as much as possible.
This work enabled the team to identify their focus areas.
1. Access to care for the uninsured
2. Prevention of diabetes
3. Diabetes management
4. Access to behavioral health care
5. Early detection of breast cancer in low-income, uninsured population
The team is thrilled about the measurable progress made against 10 strategic initiatives in these focus areas:
