It’s hard to know where you’re going if you don’t know where you’ve been. As SCHA closes the books on another year serving South Carolina’s hospital community, we invite you to take a moment to look back at all that our hospitals have achieved by working together as an industry since SCHA’s inception in 1921. From the birth of Blue Cross of South Carolina in 1945 to the implementation of the nation’s first statewide electronic billing system in 1982, SCHA’s role in state health initiatives reaches far beyond the walls of our hospitals. We look forward to addressing the needs of the state’s health care community in 2016 with the same spirit and passion that has fueled the Association since 1921. Here’s to another great year serving South Carolina’s hospitals and building on all the great work we’ve done together!
