South Carolina hospital offers new employees free housing

New employees of Hilton Head (S.C.) Hospital will have one less concern when they move to the island: Housing is included, at least temporarily. 

Hilton Head Regional Healthcare has entered an agreement to rent nearby loft apartments on a short-term basis, according to a Sept. 27 news release. The system is paying below area market rates and will offer the units to clinical staff who are new to the area — including travel nurses — at no out-of-pocket cost. 

Housing prices are becoming increasingly expensive on the island, causing employer-subsidized housing to become more common. Joel Taylor, the health system's CEO, said he hopes the apartments will help attract and retain top talent and provide a better work-life balance for employees. 

The Richardson Group, the Hilton Head-based property management company responsible for the apartments, is hosting a celebratory opening on Sept. 29 at 3 p.m. EDT.
