CHERAW, S.C. — McLeod Health Cheraw employees were recognized for their years of dedicated service during an honorary Employee Service Awards Celebration held at the hospital on Sept. 12. 


“The values of McLeod Health are demonstrated through the compassion and commitment of our employees to always keep the patient at the forefront of everything they do,” said Hospital Administrator Mib Scoggins, who opened the ceremony. “A recipient of the Employee Service Award demonstrates our four core values.

Each employee was recognized for their cumulative years of service that continued from the former Chesterfield General Hospital and Marlboro Park Hospital. Their cumulative efforts total more than 375 years of caring for the patients and families living in Chesterfield and Marlboro counties. 

Debbie Locklair, senior vice president and chief human resources officer for McLeod Health, concluded the program by thanking everyone in attendance for their years of service to the hospital system.
