Waccamaw Community Hospital Wins Chamber Business Image Award

Thursday, October 19, 2006

Myrtle Beach, SC - The Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce awarded Waccamaw Community Hospital the 2006 Business Image Award during the Chamber's 66th Annual Membership Meeting.

“We are delighted to receive this honor,” said Gayle Resetar, Chief Operating Officer for Georgetown Hospital System, “Our employees take pride in our facility and with our relationship with the community and the patients that we serve.”

The Business Image Award is given to the firm whose business, advertising or product appearance enhances the image and reputation of the community, and whose staff gives excellent customer service.

Waccamaw Community Hospital has said goodbye to cold hospital environments and has embraced a design with attention to detail that provides an optimum setting for patient care and medical technology. At Waccamaw Community Hospital, visitors and patients will see preserved, natural palm trees, rocking chairs, artwork in patient rooms hiding medical equipment and baskets of complimentary apples.

Waccamaw Community Hospital, which opened late in 2002, includes 83 all-private patient rooms, and 29 acute rehabilitation beds. The facility’s interior and exterior design philosophy addresses the specific geographic region in which it is located.

Waccamaw Community Hospital (WCH) is part of Georgetown Hospital System and serves patients in the northern segment of Georgetown County and surrounding areas.
