GHS Community Health Department Has New Location

Georgetown, SC— Georgetown Hospital System’s Community Health Education department has established a new office location on Georgetown Memorial Hospital’s campus where weekly screenings will be offered beginning in January 2009.

Community Health Education is now located in the back of a building which houses Dr. Richard Camlin’s office on Memorial Lane in Georgetown.  Entrance to the Community Health Education office is from the back, as indicated by signage.

Community health screenings were previously offered monthly in Georgetown at Belk’s Department Store; however, beginning in January,  GHS Community Health will offer screenings every Tuesday at the new office location. Screening offerings include a Lipid Profile-$20; Total Cholesterol-$7, Glucose (Blood Sugar) testing-$3, and free blood pressure screenings from 7:30 a.m. until 12:00 noon. Community Health screenings will continue at Waccamaw Community Hospital every Thursday from 7:30 a.m. until 12:00 noon.
