CareSouth Carolina Leadership

CareSouth Carolina has always understood our mission to be that of a health care home.  Ever since our humble beginnings as the Society Hill Family Health Clinic in 1980, we have dedicated ourselves to serving as the safe harbor, the place where people in our community can come, regardless of their circumstance, and develop healing, caring relationships.  As a community health center, we understand our patients to be part of our family who we know are about much more than a physical ailment or concern.  We listen to our patients and have developed services that meet the whole need – from community services to pharmacy to behavioral health – all under one roof.  Doing this, we are so honored by the trust and respect our patients and partners have placed in us.  We could not have succeeded without all of us working together. 

On behalf of the Board of Directors and Leadership Team, welcome to CareSouth Carolina.   We’re glad you’re here.
