SCHA and Partners Honor Healthcare Heroes During Nurses and Hospital Weeks


The South Carolina Hospital Association (SCHA) will launch its now annual statewide salute to the hospital workforce May 6th – 13th, during National Nurses Week and National Hospital Week, with discounts, giveaways, and communications programs to show appreciation for “healthcare heroes.”

SCHA is partnering with member hospitals, Solvent Networks – its business solutions division – and a number of businesses and organizations to show appreciation for hospital workers. Promotional and recognition plans to date include:

  • A social media and outdoor campaign called “H is for Heroes,” which uses the familiar blue and white highway signs designating hospital locations;
  • A 50% discount on shoes and clothing for employees and up to four family members at the adidas Employee Store in Greenville;
  • Discounted tickets to the May 14th Goodyear 400 in a salute to nurses and hospital employees by the Darlington Raceway and NASCAR;
  • A salute to healthcare workers during the Greenville Drive game on May 16th, along with a $10 voucher for ballpark food, drink or merchandise;
  • Discounted tickets and recognition during the Myrtle Beach Pelicans game on May 13th, during which a healthcare worker will throw out the first pitch;
  • 15% discount on unique snacks, drinks and candies from around the world at Planet Munchies in Columbia;
