Learning about ourRural Health Communities

Since 1991, SCORH has been working to improve the health of rural and underserved people throughout the state. SCORH has worked extensively with rural hospitals, federally qualified health centers (FQHCs), rural health clinics, free clinics and other providers to ensure access to quality health care.


South Carolina Office of Rural Health: Improving Access for Healthier Rural Communities

To help, we created a two-phase, multiyear initiative to target select rural communities to mobilize, engage and receive support to address the root causes of poor health.


Looking Forward

Phase 1 is complete! SCORH identified Dillon and Marion Counties as pilot sites.

Phase 2, which began in April 2016, is the implementation and evaluation of the pilot sites. The evaluation will inform the future support to additional cohorts of communities.
