HARTSVILLE, S.C. — CareSouth Carolina has been awarded a grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture totaling $520,177 to further enhance its school-based services.

The grant will enable CareSouth Carolina to make significant improvements to its telehealth infrastructure.

The primary focus of the grant is to equip all remaining schools in Chesterfield and Marlboro counties with telehealth equipment and to replace mobile equipment with permanent equipment in Dillon County. Currently, the organization uses mobile equipment, and this funding will allow for the implementation of permanent and higher-quality telehealth solutions.

Additionally, the grant will support the installation of telehealth equipment at AMI Kids Sandhills, strengthening CareSouth Carolina’s partnership with the organization and enhancing the health care services available to the youth it serves.

With the addition of this grant, CareSouth Carolina will extend its services to fully support 32 schools, reaffirming its commitment to improving access to quality healthcare within the community.
