South Carolina Hospital Association is a private, not-for-profit organization made up of some 100 member hospitals and health systems and about 900 personal members associated with our institutional members. The South Carolina Hospital Association was created in 1921 to serve as the collective voice of the state's hospital community. The Association is proud to be a part of the state's hospital industry, adding value to efforts to care for the people of South Carolina. By helping to keep South Carolina's hospitals healthy, we are helping to keep our state healthy.
SCHA's mission is to support its member hospitals in creating a world-class health care delivery system for the people of South Carolina by fostering high quality patient care and serving as effective advocates for the hospital community.
South Carolina's hospitals will be national leaders in improving the quality and safety of patient care, and SCHA will be a national leader in advocacy.
We are stronger together than apart.
