Thank you, Healthcare Workers!

SCRPP would like to join the SC Hospital Association in thanking our healthcare heroes. SCRPP is extremely honored to serve and support healthcare professionals licensed by the State of South Carolina and grateful for your tireless efforts and passion for helping others. SCRPP would like to express appreciation to and thank all of our licensed healthcare professionals for your continued sacrifice and dedication. The coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to affect our nation and the State of South Carolina, almost two years later, and our healthcare heroes continue to report to work to treat and protect us despite the risk of harm that COVID 19 presents to themselves and their loved ones. We are well aware of the risk you take each day and are grateful to you for your skills and abilities, selflessness, and dedication. Thank you.

In loving memory of Dr. James Graham

PRC® WBA Summer Offerings

New Well-being Focused Assessments:

As we continue to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic, we have all become increasingly aware of how the pandemic has stressed the healthcare system and healthcare workers. Data continue to emerge raising concerns about the mental health of our providers. While many systems have tried to support their healthcare workforce through providing self-help resources, colleague and peer support, resiliency, and wellbeing opportunities, sometimes such services are not sufficient.  In response to these developing needs, PRC® is offering new short, focused assessments for healthcare professionals who may be struggling with psychological and psychiatric issues secondary to or exacerbated by the pandemic. The assessments will include psychological testing, clinical interviews, and psychiatric assessment. Assessment results will be used to help create a structured plan that may include a short focused treatment effort addressing acute issues while we concurrently work to help establish outpatient providers in the community.   

For more information please call 785-842-9772 and ask for Nathaniel or Mette.

Tribute to Dr. Hugh V. Coleman

.

SC Recovering Professional Program would like to pay tribute to and honor the legacy of Dr. Hugh V. Coleman. Dr. Coleman served as the first medical director of SCRPP from January 1, 2000-June 30, 2007, when he retired a second time.  We are extremely grateful for his foresight and implementation of a monitoring program for licensed healthcare professionals, his passion for their recovery, his assistance to all, but specifically healthcare professionals, and lastly, his sense of humor. Thank you, Dr. Coleman, you will be forever missed.  

Dr. Hugh V Coleman, 93, passed away on Friday, June 18, 2021. Dr. Coleman was born in Columbia, SC, the son of the late H Victor Coleman and Mary Knight Coleman. He got his B.S. degree from the University of South Carolina and his M.D. from the Medical University of South Carolina.

Dr. Coleman practiced General Surgery in Marion, SC from 1960 to 1998. After retirement he was instrumental in forming the Recovering Professional Program, a program the helps Health Care Professionals with substance abuse problems. In March 2002, Dr. Coleman received South Carolina’s highest award, The Order of the Palmetto, presented by Gov. Hodges at the governor’s Mansion for being a catalyst in the creation of the Recovering Professional Program.

Dr. Coleman had many other accomplishments that are too numerous to mention. He was a high achiever and excelled at everything did.
