Georgetown, SC— Georgetown Hospital System recently donated an automatic defibrillator to the Georgetown County Family YMCA. 

The defibrillator is used in the event of a cardiac emergency. In addition to the donation, GHS is providing defibrillator training to YMCA employees.

“The hospital is pleased to be able to donate this important piece of life-saving equipment to the Y,” GHS CEO Bruce Bailey said. “Our partnership with the Y has been very successful and we look forward to finding more ways in which our relationship can bring value to our community.”

According to Amy Brennan, executive director, “This gift is so valuable for the YMCA. We have many health seekers, health professionals and dedicated members and guests at the Y. However, an emergency event can happen anywhere and at any time. It is a blessing that we have such a meaningful relationship with the hospital and that they recognize the true value of health and safety in our community.”
