SC Hospital Progress in Call to Action for Health Equity and #123 for Equity Pledge

The Alliance for a Healthier South Carolina, the South Carolina Hospital Association, AnMed Health, Bon Secours St. Francis, Greenville Health System, MUSC, Tidelands Health and 27 other partners launched in June of 2015 the Call to Action for Health Equity in South Carolina which focuses on changing the way organizations see their role in helping diverse populations make healthy choices, access health and social services, and enjoy healthier physical and social environments.

By joining the South Carolina Call to Action for Health Equity, South Carolina hospitals are also automatically enrolled in the American Hospital Association #123forEquity Pledge. To enroll, email rfoster@scha.org

Readmissions Data: In alignment with the AHA #123forEquity Pledge and the South Carolina Call to Action for Health Equity, SCHA is providing all acute-care hospitals with a report of readmission stratified by race, the racial disparity gap, and the impact of the disparity gap in the overall readmission rate of the hospital.
