The SCSRC needs your help gathering information about the hospitals across the state of South Carolina. With the number of hospitals and frequent changes, it is next to impossible for us to keep up with accurate information. We are asking your assistance!
From now until May 31, 2016, your name will be entered 1 time for every submission of this form, for a chance to win FREE registration to a SCSRC regional symposium of your choice. The information we are gathering will be used to communicate SCSRC related news and legislative initiatives within the state. Thank you for advancing Respiratory Care!
