Tidelands Health

Not Just Another Hospital

Black River United Way (BRUW) works with companies, governments, nonprofits and other organizations to address complex challenges on a local scale. Our partners contribute more than money. Their ideas, volunteer power, in-kind support and more are helping build stronger communities. Tidelands Health has been an integral part in helping us expand our reach and deliver evidence-based programs in Georgetown and Williamsburg counties.

We partner on three major initiatives that focus on developing root cause solutions with sustainable outcomes. For the past two years, Tidelands Health has partnered with us on Build United. Build United focuses on emergency home repairs that exacerbate existing chronic diseases such as asthma, diabetes, etc. In 2020, Tidelands Health funds were leveraged with other funds to complete eight home repairs that included roofing and HVAC for the elderly. We co-chair, along with Coastal Carolina University, the Winyah Bay Resiliency Task Force (WBRTF). The WBRTF’s vision is a sustainable and resilient region comprised of Georgetown and Williamsburg counties that is prepared for the challenges of today and for the future to reduce the risk and inequities for all in the county.

And, lastly, we partner on the Positive Parenting Program, known as Triple P Georgetown. Triple P Georgetown is a parenting support program for parents with children up to age 12 that provides easy, practical strategies to help parents build strong and healthy relationships with their children. BRUW, Tidelands Health and the Children’s Recovery Center serve as the leadership team to ensure that it is designed, implemented and delivered with fidelity across the entire county.

Thank you, Tidelands Health, for being more than a place that takes care of sick people. Your preventative work through our partner initiatives shows your commitment to a well-rounded, healthy community. We look forward to our continued partnership!
