On Friday, May 15, HealthSouth Corporation and Memorial Health broke ground on a new, 50-bed inpatient rehabilitation hospital, to replace its current 50-bed inpatient rehabilitation hospital that is located on Memorial University Medical Center’s campus at 4700 Waters Avenue in Savannah.

In her position as CEO, she oversees all of the hospital’s day-to-day operations as well as patient quality and care. Kathy has more than 35 years of experience in working in healthcare in management roles and as a physical therapist. Sixteen years of her experience have been with Memorial Health University Medical Center. Kathy earned her bachelor’s degree in physical therapy at the Medical College of Georgia.
The Literacy Center (TLC), Beaufort County’s only nonprofit adult literacy organization, is seeking compassionate and enthusiastic volunteers to tutor adults in reading, writing, math and English as a Second Language (ESL).
TLC students come from a variety of backgrounds, and they are hoping to acquire the skills they need to independently pursue life goals, support their families, and contribute to their communities. You can help these adult students achieve their goals by volunteering to teach or serve as a substitute tutor.
No prior teaching, tutoring experience, or knowledge of another language is necessary – only a desire to make a difference in someone’s life. TLC provides volunteer training, materials and support. Daytime and evening opportunities are available in Beaufort, Bluffton and on Hilton Head Island.
For more information about tutoring or other volunteer opportunities, call Ann Skinner at 843.815.6616 (Beaufort/Bluffton); Mike Powers at 843.681.6655 (Hilton Head Island) or visit www.theliteracycenter.org.
