Tidelands Health CFO Terry Kiser retires

Georgetown, S.C.-based Tidelands Health CFO Terry Kiser is retiring, effective March 31. He has influenced the health system's financial goals and strategies for 28 years.

Mr. Kiser worked for health systems in Indiana and Virginia before joining Tidelands Health, then known as Georgetown County Memorial Hospital, in 1988. The health system has grown from one hospital and a small urgent care center to three hospitals and around 50 care locations.

The health system is on the brink of breaking ground on a $44 million, 65,000-square-foot medical facility in Myrtle Beach, S.C., and it plans on partnering with Birmingham, Ala.-based HealthSouth Corp. to build a 46-bed inpatient rehabilitation hospital in Little River, S.C.

"Terry is the one who has secured the financing we need to complete projects and, just as importantly, made sure we had the resources to pay it down," said Bruce Bailey, president and CEO of Tidelands Health. "We have been incredibly fortunate to benefit from his talents over the last 28 years."

Beth Ward, currently CFO of the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center University Hospitals and Clinics in Dallas, is succeeding Mr. Kiser.
