McLeod Health hosted an open house and ribbon cutting on Tuesday, January 15, in conjunction with the Greater Sumter Chamber of Commerce to celebrate the opening of McLeod Occupational Health Sumter.

“In March of 2018, McLeod was invited to Sumter to attend a meeting of local Human Resources representatives. One of the concerns expressed was the lack of Occupational Health services in the area,” said Octavia Williams-Blake, Vice President of Workplace Health and Safety. “I want those representatives to know, McLeod heard you. We are pleased to add McLeod Occupational Health Sumter to the existing practices of McLeod Cardiology Associates and McLeod Orthopaedics in Sumter. Our goal is to provide quality care to area residents, employees and their family members.”

“Today is a celebration of this facility and demonstrates how McLeod Health continues to advance the delivery of care in Sumter County,” said Rachel Gainey, Administrator of McLeod Health Clarendon. “As the choice for medical excellence, we believe in serving others. The way we achieve this is by delivering the highest quality of care as we improve the overall health and wellbeing of those who choose McLeod. This ribbon cutting is a testament of that commitment to you as part of our continually developing plans to meet the spectrum of needs in this community.”
