MANNING - Two new members will be joining the McLeod Health Clarendon Community Advisory Board effective immediately.

Dr. Ansel McFaddin, who practices in internal medicine, will be new to the board while the Rev. George P. Windley, pastor of Ebenezer Missionary Church in Manning, has served for numerous years on the Clarendon Memorial Hospital Board of Trustees.

McFaddin and Windley will join Kim Johnson, Bank of Clarendon marketing assistant officer; David Epperson, Clarendon County administrator; George Summers, retired Air Force corporal; and Dr. Catherine Rabon, McLeod Health Clarendon chief medical officer, as board members. Returning member Dr. Stephen Corey will serve as chairman of the advisory board, and returning member Dr. Marva Williams will serve as the board's vice chairwoman.

The 12-member board also includes Ron Boring, McLeod Health chief operating officer; Fulton Ervin, McLeod Health chief financial officer; Rachel Gainey, McLeod Health Clarendon administrator; Kim Jolly, McLeod Health Clarendon chief nursing officer; and Dr. Robert Eagerton, McLeod Health Clarendon medical chief of staff, who serve as ex-officio members.

The purpose of the advisory board, which includes community leaders from Clarendon, Sumter and Williamsburg counties, is to form a bridge between physicians, management and the community. Advisory board members review strategic issues and challenges that are facing the medical center, the health care industry and surrounding communities. The board also offers advice and recommendations to the McLeod Health Clarendon Administration.

Established in 1951, McLeod Health Clarendon, previously known as Clarendon Memorial Hospital, served the residents of Clarendon County for more than 65 years. Five years ago, the hospital completed a $22 million, 47,000-square-foot expansion and renovation project that included new operating rooms, a new emergency department, new same-day surgery center and larger patient rooms.

With more than 30 physicians representing medical specialists ranging from family medicine, OB/GYN and orthopedics to plastic surgery and urology, McLeod Health Clarendon offers a wide range of services including labor and delivery, infusion therapy, cardiac rehabilitation, outpatient rehabilitation, diagnostic imaging and home health.

Currently McLeod Health Clarendon is one of seven hospitals working under the McLeod Health umbrella. The other hospitals include McLeod Health Cheraw, McLeod Darlington, McLeod Dillion, McLeod Loris, McLeod Seacoast (North Myrtle Beach) and the cornerstone, McLeod Regional Medical Center in Florence. McLeod also operates Urgent Care Centers in Florence and Darlington, along with nearly 85 medical practices throughout 15 counties in the McLeod Health service area.
