Working Well, a three-year grant funded initiative that aims to improve worksite wellness through policy, system, and environment change related to tobacco, nutrition, and physical activity, announced eight hospitals from across the state of South Carolina as Centers of Excellence. We'd now like to proudly announce the addition of Georgetown Hospital System to that list. Congratulations to Georgetown Hospital System for working hard to earn a Center of Excellence desigantion as part of the Working Well initative!
These nine facilities were chosen as Working Well Centers of Excellence because of their innovative leadership and commitment in the realm of employee wellness and their desire to improve population health in their community. Each will provide leadership within the healthcare industry, business community, and community at large by committing to fulfill the following duties and responsibilities.

- Participate in conference calls hosted by the SC Hospital Association to discuss such topics as barriers and challenges, innovative ways to overcome obstacles, current successes, sharing of best practices, etc.
- Serve as a leader for other facilities and businesses in their region, throughout SC, and across the country. This includes, but is not limited to, hosting hospital tours and open houses as a way to showcase employee wellness efforts, successes, and challenges.
