Health Care Heroes Truck Travels Across South Carolina

To thank South Carolina’s health care workforce for their brave commitment to patients and communities in the face of COVID-19, the South Carolina Hospital Association (SCHA) deployed a "Health Care Heroes Truck" to visit hospitals across the state and share messages of appreciation. The truck traveled across South Carolina May 6 – 12 to coincide with National Hospital Week and National Nurses Week and provide an opportunity to say "thank you" to nurses, doctors and other front-line workers who are supporting the state during the pandemic.

Via social media, the SCHA encouraged people to share personal messages of gratitude using the hashtag #SCHealthcareHeroes. These messages were featured on a full LED screen that covered an entire side of the truck. SCHA’s Facebook and Twitter pages highlight the visits and celebrations as the traveling billboard made stops at hospitals across the state.
