South Carolina organization to launch '30 days of thanks' for healthcare workers

The South Carolina Hospital Association announced Oct. 25 the launch of "30 Days of Thanks" to honor healthcare workers around the state, according to a press release.

The month-long campaign coordinated by the organization will run from Oct. 25 to Nov. 24. Healthcare workers will be honored through communications, prizes and giveaways. While Clemson Athletics and University of South Carolina Athletics have already announced special offers, the organization is calling on other groups to join the campaign.

"We recognize that employee burnout related to COVID-19 is impacting industries worldwide and frontline healthcare staff are certainly feeling that struggle," said Lara Hewitt, SCHA's vice president of workforce and member engagement. "We've seen many healthcare workers leave the field this year, [whether] it be burnout or early retirement, and we want to thank those that have stayed in the workforce to support South Carolina's communities throughout this pandemic."
