Our commitment to South Carolina’s rural communities:
Encourage investment. Promote opportunities. Improve health.
The South Carolina Office of Rural Health (SCORH) is a non-profit organization with a mission to close the gap in health status and life expectancy between rural and urban communities in the Palmetto State. SCORH has been promoting investment, opportunity and health within rural communities since 1991.
Through a family of programs and resources, SCORH offers training, education and technical assistance to rural providers, advocates and communities. With 27 percent of our state’s residents living in rural areas, SCORH believes in preserving the unique character of rural communities without compromising their opportunities and access to critical services.
