The bonds also will refinance loans for McLeod Loris and McLeod Seacoast, acute care hospitals located in Loris and Little River.

“Continued use of such advantageous financial instruments from JEDA has allowed McLeod Health to expand our facilities across this part of the state, and more importantly, our ability to provide an increasing range of medical services to its people.”

“As South Carolina has grown, so has our need for medical services of all kinds. McLeod Health has been a leader in essential healthcare expansion and we’re excited we can help them finance their projects and progress,” said Harry A. Huntley, CPA, Executive Director of JEDA in Columbia.
