Moore retires from Georgetown Hospital System Board of Trustees 

Tuesday, May 08, 2012

Georgetown, SC – After over 30 years of continuous volunteer service, Charles Moore has retired from his position as a member of Georgetown Hospital System’s Board of Trustees.

Through his service, Moore has assisted in determining the scope of healthcare services offered in Georgetown and surrounding counties.  His retirement as Board Chair was effective April 19.

"Moore has been directly involved in many decisions related to the growth of local healthcare services and Georgetown Hospital System since he joined the Board of Trustees in 1981," said Bruce P. Bailey, CEO.   "The depth and breadth of healthcare services available today are related to the dedication and interest of board members like Moore.  It is a rare individual who would be willing to commit more than 3 decades of their life to any volunteer cause," Bailey added.

During Moore’s 31 years of service on the Board of Trustees, he served as Treasurer; Vice Chairman; Chairman of the Georgetown Memorial Hospital Board; Vice Chairman and Chairman of the Georgetown Hospital System Board of Trustees.  Many new healthcare services have been introduced and numerous outpatient clinics and other facilities have been added to the growing Georgetown Hospital System family. 

Organizational milestones achieved during his tenure were the opening and subsequent multiple expansions of Waccamaw Community Hospital in Murrells Inlet as well as the opening of HealthPoint – Center for Health and Fitness in Pawleys Island, Francis B. Ford Cancer Treatment Center, The Imaging and Breast Health Center in Murrells Inlet and the recent opening of Waccamaw Medical Park-West. 

“It has been an honor and privilege to serve the hospital system over the past 31 years,” said Charles Moore. “The dedicated group of board members, physicians, leaders and professional staff were a pleasure to work with.  I appreciate the opportunity to have been associated with the Georgetown Hospital System.”

Moore retired from the banking industry in 1997 after serving 40 years.  Since that time, he worked in the Financial Services field. His most recent position was as Financial Representative with Blanton Financial Group.
