(5/10/2013) While McLeod Loris Seacoast recognizes the value of its employees year round, May is the month that formally honors the men and women who are committed to providing quality health care for their communities.
The Mission, Vision and Values of McLeod Health were the cornerstone of special events held the week of May 6 to celebrate the individuals who work tirelessly each day to care for patients and provide excellent service to customers of McLeod Loris Seacoast.
The week-long celebration also included recognition of National Nurses Week. Nurses Week provides the opportunity to recognize the spirit of nursing and acknowledges the excellent efforts of all employees involved in nursing responsibilities.
