Community Outreach

CareSouth Carolina takes its role in the community to heart. This is our home, and we understand that the health of any one person is inextricably linked to the health and well-being of the community.

We have a long-standing community health program that engages people in actions that improve personal health and the health of the communities where we live.

CareSouth Carolina has staff in place that can provide one-on-one case management and assistance to assist them with addressing social needs of everything from assisting with signing up for an insurance plan like Medicaid and the Affordable Care Act to assisting with connecting patients with needed services and resources.

Provide health education related to disease prevention, screenings, and healthy behaviors. Examples of health education topics include:

  • Chronic disease prevention
  • Nutrition
  • Physical activity
  • Smoking cessation

Transportation Services: We understand that the lack of transportation is sometimes a barrier to needed care, so we can help facilitate and/or provide limited transportation services for clients/patients.

Translation/Interpretation services: CareSouth Carolina provides language interpretation services to our limited English speaking patients. CareSouth Carolina also arranges for American Sign Language (ASL) services for our patients as well.
