What if I don’t want to work out at the hospital’s facility?

Why do you put so much emphasis on risk factors?

When we conducted a community health needs assessment we found that an unusually high percentage of Lowcountry residents are prone to chronic disease.

Where does the money to pay for these new programs come from?
The upfront costs were funded by the Beaufort Memorial Hospital Foundation, thanks to grants and gifts from individuals and businesses. Membership and service fees should cover ongoing operating costs.
