In an effort to thank the state’s healthcare workforce for their brave commitment to patients and communities in the face of COVID-19, the South Carolina Hospital Association (SCHA) is deploying a “Heroes Truck” to visit hospitals across the state sharing messages of appreciation for healthcare workers.
The Healthcare Heroes Truck will be arriving at the campus of Abbeville Area Medical Center on Friday, May 8th at 10:40am. We are excited to celebrate the healthcare heroes right here in our facility and let them know how grateful we are for the amazing work they do.
“This is a meaningful opportunity to recognize the doctors, nurses and other essential healthcare workers battling COVID-19 on the frontlines,” said Dean Turner, Hospital CEO.
The Healthcare Heroes Truck began in the Upstate at the Prisma Health Oconee Medical Campus on Wednesday, May 6th and will travel to more than 80 of the state’s hospitals with rotating billboard messages to boost morale and help recognize National Hospital Week and National Nurses Week. The trip will conclude on Tuesday, May 12 at The Regional Medical Center in Orangeburg.
Anyone can submit a personal message to be featured on the truck by using the hashtag #SCHealthcareHeroes on Twitter. Individuals can visit ProtectTheHeroes.org to be connected to the website of a local hospital of their choosing and make a
contribution. Hospitals are facing shortages of many critical supplies and have multiple resource needs related to COVID-19. Each hospital will determine where funds should be applied to have the greatest impact.
