We are truly honored.”

Goodridge, Traveling Executive Officer, AF Surgeon General ; and was escorted from Shaw Air Force Base in Sumter by Ahmed Calvo, M.D., MPH, senior medical officer at the Health Resource Service Administration’s Office of Health Information Technology and Quality.

    “I was so impressed with you and your team,” said Surgeon General Green about the visit with CareSouth Carolina staff. “I have been talking about what you shared non-stop with my entire team. I only hope I can do a little of what you have so aptly demonstrated can be done when the focus is on the patient and the community.
