South Carolina foundation puts $3M toward surgery center, other hospital projects

Self Regional Healthcare Foundation contributed $3 million to finance surgery center, childbirth center and emergency department improvements at the Greenwood, S.C.-based hospital, the Index-Journal reports.

The $3 million check marked the start of the foundation's $7.5 million fundraising campaign, dubbed "Our Vision is 2020." It was presented during a celebration of the foundation's 35th year in existence. The foundation has raised nearly $40 million since it was established.

Renovations to the emergency department are slated to begin in early 2020. The emergency department was designed to accommodate 30,000 patients annually, but it could take double that number this year.
