Gayle Resetar, executive vice president and chief operating officer for Georgetown Hospital System, has been elected chairperson of the State Health Planning Committee, which advises state officials on the development of the state health plan.

The state health plan, which is overseen by the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control, is used to analyze existing health care facilities and services throughout the state and projects needs for the upcoming year. The projections are used in the certificate of need program to determine where new services and facilities will be located.

“I am honored to have been selected for this new role and to work with my fellow committee members, whom I have long admired and respected,” Resetar said. “Health care is incredibly complex, and the needs of our state are immense. Our committee has a huge responsibility to get this right, and I look forward to supporting my colleagues to ensure that we deliver high quality, cost effective care to communities across our state.”

A West Virginia native, Resetar earned her bachelor's degree in business management from Fairmont State University and completed her master's degree in health care administration at the University of South Carolina. She is a fellow of the American College of Healthcare Executives. She joined Georgetown Hospital System in 1990.
