McLeod Health to Locate Medical Office Building in Carolina Forest


McLeod Health has announced plans to open a medical office building in order to
provide the community with access to physicians and outpatient services in
Carolina Forest. This will be the initial phase of development of its McLeod
Seacoast Carolina Forest Campus.

The proposed facility and services will expand to meet the needs of adults and children and
provide convenience to the residents within and around the Carolina Forest
area. A feasibility study is underway to further determine other appropriate medical
resources which are needed in this community.

The investment in this medical expansion in this region underscores the commitment of McLeod to
provide treatment, services and health care that the people of Horry County
deserve, according to McLeod Seacoast Administrator, Dick Tinsley.

"We are pleased to initiate the investment of these medical offerings for the people in
our county. This type of facility will insure the continuity of quality care
expected from our McLeod Health system," stated Tinsley. "At McLeod,
our organization is committed to a mission of improving the health and
well-being of our citizens. We are privileged to be a part of this effort to
provide excellent care, greater access and convenience to area families."
