Building a Healthy Community

Local Pharmacist Works to Improve Healthcare

Rock Ouzts has been a pharmacist in Manning for nearly three decades. Like many who call the area home, Rock knew that the success of the partnership with McLeod Health would be crucial for the future of Clarendon County.

That is why Rock volunteered to serve on the McLeod Health Clarendon Foundation Advisory Board.

“McLeod Health has ensured access to quality healthcare in our community,” Rock said. “Investing in our hospital improves our community. The programs and services supported by the Foundation better the future of healthcare in Clarendon County.”

Rock takes his role on the McLeod Foundation Advisory Board seriously. He believes that his duties go far beyond simply attending board meetings. Rock acts as an ambassador for the Foundation in the community and constantly works to make connections with potential Foundation donors.

“As a pharmacist, I see the importance of McLeod’s mission and the value of having quality healthcare locally,” Rock explained. “A community hospital is not only crucial for residents, but also impacts a thriving business community in Clarendon County.”

In addition to his tireless volunteer work on behalf of the Foundation, Rock gives generously out of his own pocket as well.

“We feel blessed to give back to the hospital that has graciously invested in our community,” he added. “It is indeed an honor and privilege to support the McLeod Foundation.”
