In September of 2000, Carl Humphries became the executive director of HopeHealth, then known as Hope for the Pee Dee. Humphries has been the HopeHealth CEO since 2007.

A Message From the CEO


t’s difficult to believe that HH has been providing outreach services and medical care for a quarter of a century. As 2015 drew to a close, we were poised to open new doors and pathways to health for our community. Internally, we may have been focused on providing the facilities for our future, but we never took our eyes off of the people, both our team members and our customers. Throughout 2015, we continued to expand and bring a renewed hope to more than 34,000 patients. The addition of more than a dozen new providers and services such as Access Hope and Diabetes and Nutrition services, illustrated our continued commitment to those patients and our forwardfocused attitude for health care. A report published by Capital Link states that HopeHealth had an economic impact of $40.4 million to the communities we served in 2015 and gave us credit for 211 direct and 130 indirect jobs. The assessment also reported $5M in total tax revenues as a result of our company and that our efforts resulted in $40.2M in cost savings related to health care. I’m very proud of those facts. But, as you may or may not know, I’m a social worker. I care deeply about those things, but what I care most about is what happens

inside of our walls because if those walls could talk they would tell you a lot of stories. They would tell you about Jenny. A female in her 30’s who came for a simple medical visit. Because we have employees who care and go above and beyond the everyday tasks, someone took the time to dig a little deeper when they sensed something wasn’t quite right. Jenny sensed this care and concern and was able to voice she was being physically abused by her spouse. We were able to connect her with other resources in the community to make her feel safe and allow her to have her life back. They would tell you about Robert, a successful local businessman who has a great insurance plan and lots of choices as to where he can seek health care. He comes to HopeHealth because he believes in the quality of care we provide and because he wants to pay it forward. He understands our mission and that by being a patient here he’s able to contribute to someone right next to him who doesn’t have insurance and maybe hasn’t had the same good fortune in life as he. Join us as we review some of those stories and the impact HopeHealth has had in our community during 2015.

About Us

Living our Values

CPO Ken Burgess speaks at the HopeHealth all sites meeting, March 4, 2015. All sites is an annual gathering for all HopeHealth staff from each location across the state.

By: Ken Burgess, Chief Performance Officer


hat does it mean to live our values? For me, to live out my values means to stand up for what is important to me. I want to demonstrate by my actions what I value, so that those that I come in contact with know my values before I ever say a word. There is power in action.

Photo by Meade Agency

Likewise, as an organization, we have defined what we value. We value compassion, integrity, accountability, innovation, and excellence. I say to every group of new employees, corporate culture is not who we say we are, it’s what we do every day. A culture of excellence is built on a foundation of each person being accountable to the organizational values.


Annual Report 2015

So if we are going to live out the values that we have said matter to us as an organization, they must be lived out every day. There is power in habit. Aristotle said, “We are what we repeatedly do, excellence therefore is not an act, but a habit.”

Our Mission HopeHealth is committed to excellence through service that exemplifies love for people and passion for their well being.

Our Vision Serving others, giving hope, changing lives.

Our Values As employees of HopeHealth and leaders in the community, we are committed to promoting the following values: Compassion - We demonstrate through our words and actions a deep empathy for those in need and a strong desire to help alleviate their suffering. Integrity - We hold ourselves to the highest ethical and moral standards. We are transparent in our interactions with employees, patients, family members and business partners. Accountability - Our word is our bond: we will do what we say we will

do. Under no circumstance will we blame others for our shortcomings. We will acknowledge our mistakes and work to correct them. Innovation - We commit ourselves to seeking new ways to advance and improve our practice and expand on our successes. Excellence - We commit to offering the best of our time and talent in thorough preparation and execution of the HopeHealth mission.

Serving others, giving hope, changing lives.


t HopeHealth, we go the extra mile to treat the whole person. Instead of focusing on a specific symptom, our providers and staff assist patients with determining the underlying causes of poor health. Sometimes this is as simple as finding transportation to an appointment or a new housing opportunity. Other times, it’s a quick referral to one of our providers, including chronic disease management, diabetes prevention or substance abuse. Our integrated approach to health care truly places the patient at the center of care. Our broad range of services and programs offer patients of all ages ways to connect with community resources and partners with a single goal in mind: improved health. A team of multi-disciplinary providers customizes individual plans for each patient, in order to best achieve his or her health goals: mind, body, and spirit.

Primary Care

Primary Care for All Ages Primary care providers have the responsibility of maintaining accurate and safe medication treatment plans, which involves coordinating prescriptions written by health care specialists. HopeHealth’s primary care providers and the entire medical team do their part to prevent non-emergent visits to the hospital emergency departments, which can be extremely costly and slow down the treatment of patients who have true emergency needs. In 2013, HopeHealth began implementing the Patient Centered Medical Home model, further demonstrating our commitment to providing high quality, primary care that is relevant to the changing landscape of health care.

The Patient-Centered Medical Home Model of Care


he concept of patient-centered care is lived out each day within the walls of HopeHealth locations across the state. Patients actively engage in their health care by working with their providers to create an individualized health plan. Staff empower patients to achieve their health goals, whether it is losing a few stubborn pounds, quitting smoking, or finally talking to someone about lingering sadness. Our newest buildings are even designed around the patient centered concept. Individual suites allow for smaller waiting rooms and quicker access to the patient’s medical team. In 2015, HopeHealth earned national recognition from the National Committee for Quality Assurance as a Patient-Centered Medical Home. Recognition is given to clinic sites using evidence-based, patient-centered processes that focus on highly coordinated care and longterm participative relationships. This distinction demonstrates our continued dedication to utilizing current models of care that are cost effective and produce lasting results. HopeHealth

Population Health: New Trends in Health Care Focus on Outcomes of Populations New trends emerge around us every day and health care is not exempt. One new trend gaining momentum in the health field is called population health.


nstead of the traditional approach of creating health outcomes based on an individual’s needs, population health sees outcomes through a broader lens: the group. Examples of population health include a group of patients achieving diabetes management goals or Latina women maintaining a healthy diet and exercise regimen during pregnancy. Population health often involves the social determinants of health, looking at the root causes of poor health and any barriers to care. We have known for years that certain


Annual Report 2015

populations and groups (age, gender, ethnicity, socioeconomic status) experience similar health inequalities. Population health strives to take all of these considerations into goal setting and health care. While you may have not heard it called population health, HopeHealth has engaged in these initiatives for years. Our bilingual community health workers engage Latino parents and their young children in goal setting to reduce the risk of childhood obesity. Our Making Connections focus groups helped identify the specific root causes of mental health and wellbeing in men and boys in three specific subpopulations: Latinos, African Americans, and Veterans/Military. Through our Diabetes & Nutrition Center, we offer chronic disease management for groups. Our goal is to empower patients to achieve their health goals, both independently and as part of a group.

Access Hope Helping the Community Gain Access to Better Health Care After Hours Fitting health care into today’s busy schedules becomes an excuse for many to put off their annual check ups and preventive care visits with their providers. At HopeHealth, our Access Hope program makes taking care of one’s health more convenient than ever. The Access Hope program extends operating hours at the new HopeHealth Medical Plaza in Florence and provides an alternative to expensive emergency department visits and urgent care clinics. Through Access Hope, providers are available Monday through Saturday from 8 a.m. until 8 p.m. to help existing HopeHealth patients address their health care needs. The program also allows for the intake of new patients who are unable to receive care during traditional business hours. The extended hours began July 6, 2015, and by the end of the calendar year 1,665 patients had taken advantage of Access Hope’s services.


Annual Report 2015

HopeHealth’s relationship with our local hospitals, particularly McLeod Health and Carolinas Hospital System, is strengthened through our Access Hope program by being available for patients who have historically sought unnecessary treatment in the emergency departments. Hospital staff has direct access to reroute patients to HopeHealth's Access Hope program, where patients receive more affordable and prompt care.

Services available through Access Hope include immunizations, flu shots, and ppd testing, finger stick testing/blood sugar, pulse oximetry/oxygen testing, cold & flu sick visits, referral services, annual and preemployment physicals, STD treatment, urinalysis and extended pharmacy hours. In addition to helping existing patients address their health care needs, the program’s two providers, Claire Proffer and Michelle Poston, have seen 652 new patients for their initial visits at HopeHealth. These patients are then paired with a HopeHealth provider for their primary health care practitioner and health care home.

When Neomia Green found out she was diabetic in early 2015, she decided to take action and take control of her health.


ollowing her diagnosis by Adult Nurse Practitioner Christy Evans, Green was at a point in her life where she could either: 1) accept the diagnosis and do nothing, or 2) cross the bridge to getting healthy and staying healthy. Green decided to cross the bridge and start on a pathway to better health.

type 2 diabetic patients learn the importance of nutrition.

At 178 pounds and with an A1C of 9, Green was the heaviest and unhealthiest she had ever been in her life. After a consult with HopeHealth's Registered Dietitian, Anita Longan, Green thought it was best she enter the Diabetes Self-Management Education and Medical Nutrition program at HopeHealth; a program that helps

As her health began to get better, Green started walking two to three miles per day. As her weight began to drop, so did her A1C levels. After nine months of a disciplined diet and regular health care, Green has lost over 30 lbs and lowered her A1C to 6.5, a much healthier level.

After successful completion of the program, and through routine health check-ups with both Evans and Longan, Green took the next step of changing her diet to almost all green vegetables and minimal fried foods.

Trending Topics in Infectious Diseases By Rishika Motiani, MD The year 2015 highlighted a number of prominent topics within the field of infectious diseases, among which are Zika virus, PreP for HIV prevention and updates in other HIV treatment options, and adjuvanted flu vaccines. Zika virus outbreaks have occurred in Africa, Southeast Asia, the Pacific Islands and Latin America. Mosquitoes in SC do not yet carry Zika virus; the primary mosquito that carries Zika virus, Aedes aegypti, is only found in small numbers in the low country, but the Aedes albopictus, is more common. Transmission via blood products and sexual exposure has also been noted.

PrEP, or pre-exposure prophylaxis, for HIV prevention gained more momentum in 2015. PrEP is a way for people at high risk of exposure to HIV to prevent infection by taking a pill every day that keeps the virus from establishing a permanent infection. When taken consistently and with other prevention methods, PrEP can reduce the risk of HIV infection by up to 92%. Updates in HIV medicine were significant for patients taking Tenofovir. Tenofovir has been linked to renal toxicity and decreased bone mineral density. In November 2015 newer formulations became available in the US as part of a single tablet co-formulation with fewer adverse renal and bone effects. The first adjuvanted seasonal influenza vaccine was approved for use in individuals ≥65 years. Adjuvants are substances added to vaccines to amplify one’s immune response to vaccines.

Behavioral Health and the Impact in South Carolina Recent data shows increases in individuals seeking and receiving treatment for mental health and substance use. While more individuals are battling addiction and/or unresolved mental health issues, 2015 marked significant gains in accessibility of behavioral health support: multiple treatment options, increase in providers for opioid addiction, and enhanced treatment models, particularly the integration of behavioral health into primary care.

A Blossoming New Beginning Reggie Atkinson returned to his hometown community three years ago to help his mother when his stepfather’s health began failing. Nine days later his stepfather passed away, and Reggie realized he had to take care of his own health for the sake of his mother.


tkinson’s first steps to improving his health brought him to infectious disease services at HopeHealth. “I take my health seriously because I know I’m the only one who’s going to be there to take care of my mom, and she’s taken care of me my entire life,” he said. Atkinson had been living in North Carolina when he was first diagnosed with HIV. His weight had dropped from 245 to 162 pounds in just three months. “My T-cell count was just so low, and I had no clue,” said Atkinson. June marks three years since Atkinson returned home to South Carolina and first visited the Infectious Disease Department at HopeHealth. In those three years Atkinson said his T-Cell count has increased from just 13 to 488. Since then, he has made HopeHealth his health care home not only for managing his HIV, but also for his primary care and more. He now takes advantage of additional HopeHealth services

such as functional dry needling, provided by Chiropractor Brian Hutcheson. Atkinson said taking care of his health is what has allowed him to not only continue working but to grow his floral design business and enjoy time with his family. “I talk to my doctors. If they tell me something is going to affect me for the better, I try to incorporate that into my everyday living as much as I can,” he said. “Now that my grandbaby is there in the picture, of course I want to stay around long enough to be with him as much as I can.”

I take my health seriously because I know I’m the only one who’s going to be there to take care of my Mom.

Reggie Atkinson’s renewed focus on his health has contributed to the blossoming of his career. He created his first arrangements when he was just 15 and started working with flowers full time in his early 20s. In June 2016, his floral design business expanded with a storefront location, A Design in Time, on Fifth Street in his hometown of Hartsville. Photo by Bradley Lail

Reaching Out

“Before you start to judge me, step into my shoes and walk the life I’m living and if you get as far as I am, just maybe you will see how strong I really am.” - Unknown Author


rom 2000-2012, the Hispanic population in South Carolina experienced the most rapid growth of all states; a 161% increase (US Census Bureau). The majority of Latinos moving to our state are young, working families that do not often frequent the healthcare system except for childbirth and medical emergencies. Early prenatal care, pediatric developmental visits and chronic disease prevention are essential steps in keeping this population healthy. Many Latinos avoid seeking healthcare due to significant barriers including lack of understanding the health care system, language, transportation, and income status. Bilingual community health workers, like Gabriel Cardona pictured right, help bridge the gap between culture and health. In 2015, HopeHealth entered a strategic partnership with PASOs and the Coastal Plain Rural Health Network with a shared goal of creating a healthy South Carolina with healthy Latino communities. PASOs Coastal Plain community health workers provide culturally relevant outreach, education, and access to care where Latinos frequent most – tiendas, Hispanic churches, laundromats, and the fields and factories where they work.

This year’s observance was highlighted as the inaugural year of HopeHealth’s ‘Put A Ribbon On It’ campaign; it was an opportunity for residents, community partners and leaders, businesses and fellow nonprofit organizations to make a public pledge to support individuals living with HIV. Individuals were asked to wear a red ribbon furnished by HopeHealth and featuring the hashtag #HHRedRibbon, take a picture and share on their social media accounts. HopeHealth also sponsored a ‘Best Selfie’ campaign for photos shared to its social media accounts. Below are events/activities sponsored by HopeHealth in the communities in which it provides HIV/AIDS services and programming.

AIDSWalk 2015 HopeHealth celebrated the 18th Annual AIDSWalk at Central United Methodist Church on December 5, 2015. HopeHealth’s annual AIDSWalk is one of the ways we recognize World AIDS Day. We walk to remember all who have suffered, died and fought discrimination. We also walk to honor and encourage those who work every single day to improve the lives of those who live with HIV/AIDS. Funds raised during AIDSWalk activities are in support of the Hope Fund, a designated fund developed to help HopeHealth patients including those living with HIV. AIDSWalk activities included presentations by HopeHealth's chiropractor, Brian Hutcheson, and Chief of Special Programs Sallie Bachman. Also presenting was HIV survivor and HopeHealth patient Reggie Atkinson and national motivational speaker and HIV activist Stephanie Brown. HopeHealth CEO Carl Humphries closed out the program before attendees enjoyed a musical selection and lunch.


Finally, there was a presentation of the 2015 AIDSWalk ‘Top Fundraiser’ and “Top Recruiter’ followed by the commencement of the 2015 AIDSWalk led by the South Florence High School Army ROTC Color Guard. Annual Report 2015

Record Turnout The 2015 AIDSWalk saw record participation from sponsors, residents, community leaders, and volunteers. There were more than 50 youth in attendance, including the South Florence High School Army ROTC Color Guard who served as the grand marshals for the walk. Photos by Bradley Lail

Walking Tacos! Walking Tacos have become a highly anticipated feature of the annual AIDSWalk. Guests and participants enjoyed tacos in a bag, or walking tacos, with all the fixins’ of ground beef, tomatoes, sour cream, and lots of cheese! It was smiles all around as HopeHealth staff volunteer as servers, greeting AIDSWalk attendees and participants.

Stephanie’s Story AIDSWalk speaker Stephanie J. Brown is a national HIV activist, motivational speaker/educator, radio personality, artist, poet, and self-described “Fearless Survivor” of HIV. She is the founder/CEO of Minds Against Destruction Using Unity and uses her artwork, poetry and testimony of being diagnosed at age 19 to inspire communities. HopeHealth

VINO & VOCALS 2015 HopeHealth’s third annual Vino & Vocals Presented by Graham Law Firm took place on February 4, 2015 at the Francis Marion University Performing Arts Center in downtown Florence. Each year, the event gains popularity within the Pee Dee, and more attendees come out to show support for HopeHealth and our Hope Fund. The Hope Fund gives us a means to provide specialty care and support that is not currently available under the HopeHealth scope of services to our patients with complicated financial needs and health conditions. “With our Hope Fund, individuals right here in our community can have peace of mind knowing that they can have assistance with serious life circumstances outside of the HopeHealth walls when necessary,” explained Scherrie Cogdill, associate director of development. “We appreciate the continued support from our donors who help in this way.” All ticket proceeds went straight to patient care through the Hope Fund; and, the event was fully funded by our generous sponsors: Graham Law Firm, Long’s Drugs, Micky Finn’s, TD Bank, Francis Marion University, Webster Rogers, Lighthouse Care Center, FBi Construction, Henry Schein and Nucor Steel.

opeHealth opened the doors to its new, patient-centered community health center located in downtown Florence on February 1, 2016. The 47,889 square foot building opened with eight medical suites, a laboratory, a pharmacy, a radiology suite, and administration offices. A cafĂŠ will also be offered onsite in the summer of 2016. A new design concept to enhance patient-centered medical care was birthed out of a desire to move away from traditional medical offices with large waiting rooms. Each suite comfortably hosts two medical providers and their support team of nurses, medical assistants, and front office staff dedicated exclusively to the care of their patients.

A Vision Realized COO Deena Hilton Recalls Important Milestones at HopeHealth In 2015, HopeHealth made significant strides in expanding the availability of quality, affordable health care to residents across Florence, Williamsburg, and Clarendon Counties. Deena Hilton, HopeHealth’s Chief Operating Officer, has stood at the helm of this effort. In a single year, she has led the funding, planning and implementation phases of building projects in Florence, Greeleyville and Kingstree. To many people, Deena Hilton and HopeHealth are one and the same. Known to some as the Mother of HopeHealth, she has the large task of providing structure to the consistent growth of the organization. If you ask Hilton if she thought she would end up as the Chief Operating Officer when she began working at what was then known as Hope for the Pee Dee 18 years ago, she would tell you no. She was simply committed to the patients and staff she served each day. Looking back, Hilton notes, “I’ll never forget our early years. There were only two of us providing case management services. We each saw 40 patients and shared a single computer while working out of a donated office space on Pine Street in Florence. A few years later, our team traveled to Washington, DC and attended our first HIV/AIDS conference. It was the last year they were able to display the AIDS Memorial Quilt. The impact of AIDS was visibly devastating. The quilt stretched from the base of the Capitol to the Washington Monument, basically covering the entire Mall. We came back to serve our patients with renewed vigor.” HopeHealth

Increased Access to Care Each year HopeHealth provides access to affordable health care services to individuals across Florence, Clarendon, and Williamsburg Counties. In 2015 the organization served 34,255 patients, an 8% increase from 2014. The number of medical visits also increased by 10%. New services offered in 2015 include pain management and women’s health.

34,255 Patients Served

Number of patients served in 2015. This is an 8% increase in patients from 2014 (31,814 patients served).

117,769 Medical Visits

Number of Medical Visists in 2015. This is a 10.2% increase in visits from 2014 (106,853 visits).

Growth is a notable measure of accomplishment, but how it is achieved will mark the success of an organization for years to come. HopeHealth is committed to sustainable growth, where vision and expansion withstand the test of time.

"HopeHealth has experienced significant growth over the past several years. The challenge is to make sure that this growth is financially sound and sustainable for the organization’s future needs. In 2015, we further expanded our 340b pharmacy program by securing a contract with one of the largest retail pharmacy chains in the United States. By the close of the year, we had become partners with all of the national retail pharmacy chains, further supporting access for our patients. We experienced a 25 percent increase in medical billing income and a 16 percent increase in pharmacy revenue, enabling us to offer new services, including pain management, Access Hope, Hepatitis services, Latino services and Diabetes Management, while also having the necessary reserves on hand for the purchase of specialized diagnostic equipment, and for building projects in Florence and Kingstree. HopeHealth is well positioned to continue to grow in response to our community’s need both now and in years to come.”

Increased Access to Affordable Medications HopeHealth participates in the 340B Drug Pricing Program, a program created by the U.S. federal government in 1992 to ensure that drug manufacturers provide medications to certain organizations at a reduced rate. This allows HopeHealth to provide affordable medication pricing for its patients, regardless of insurance status. In 2015, HopeHealth partnered with more than thirty pharmacies, both locally owned and all large retail pharmacy chains, to offer affordable medications to individuals all across the state of South Carolina.

Pharmacy revenue is the leading source of income for the organization

What is the Hope Fund? HopeHealth is dedicated to providing primary and preventive services to any persons living in our service areas regardless of their insurance coverage or ability to pay.

Each year, we serve an increasing number of individuals through primary health care, behavioral health, prescription drug assistance, and specialty care services. With your help we are able to provide these valuable and necessary services to our area’s most vulnerable patients.

Children of Hope Children of Hope is a program spearheaded by HopeHealth Specialty Service's infectious disease case managers each year to ensure children affected by HIV/AIDS in the Pee Dee community have presents to open on Christmas morning. Our case managers identify those families needing the most help, and collect presents from individuals to be delivered to families at Christmas time.
