VERSIONS OF THIS BILL
TO RECOGNIZE AND COMMEND THE PROFESSIONAL SOCIAL WORKERS WHO LIVE AND WORK IN THE GREAT STATE OF SOUTH CAROLINA, TO ENCOURAGE ALL SOUTH CAROLINIANS TO HONOR SOCIAL WORKERS FOR THEIR MANY CONTRIBUTIONS TO THE PALMETTO STATE, AND TO DECLARE MARCH 2021 AS "SOCIAL WORK MONTH" IN SOUTH CAROLINA.
Whereas, the members of the South Carolina House of Representatives, appreciative of the outstanding service rendered by the social workers in our State, are pleased to recognize this caring and hard-working body of professionals; and
Whereas, with the stress of limited interaction between the patients of social workers and patient families due to restrictions from Covid-19, the demand for social work services has increased dramatically; and
Whereas, social workers exhibit tireless effort as they face every challenge with a desire to bring awareness to the community of the many psychosocial needs of patients and their families; and
Whereas, Medical Services of America, Inc., (MSA) Home Health & Hospice, formerly known as Tri-County Home Health & Hospice, has been serving the Midlands for decades, with numerous offices in South Carolina and along the east coast; and
Whereas, known for its expertise and care, MSA employs over two thousand qualified professionals who care for thousands of patients annually, providing the most comprehensive, quality home healthcare available and delivering compassionate service; and
Whereas, MSA offers many healthcare services that complement its work in home health, hospice, and home medical equipment in order to provide total home healthcare; and
Whereas, with a goal to give patients the tools they need to live comfortably and independently, MSA has this motto, "We simply care for you." Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives:
That the members of the South Carolina House of Representatives, by this resolution, recognize and commend the professional social workers who live and work in the great State of South Carolina, encourage all South Carolinians to honor social workers for their many contributions to the Palmetto State, and declare March 2021 as "Social Work Month" in South Carolina.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be provided to Medical Services of America, Inc.
