About

There are few things in this world that rival the ability to truly make a positive impact on the lives of others. At Tandem Health, we value the opportunity to journey alongside the patients who have chosen us as their partners in healthcare and understand the significant role we play in their health and well-being. Our commitment to providing excellent care is not simply a matter of daily workflow but more so a personal accountability to our friends and neighbors in the Sumter community.

As in most all communities, the demand for quality healthcare is high. Equally present are the barriers that often prevent individuals from getting the care they need. These barriers include such things as financial hardships, transportation issues, and inadequate or no health insurance. It is just as important for us to eliminate these barriers for our patients as it is to provide them with meaningful, effective medical care. After all, our mission is fueled by the commitment to provide quality healthcare that is affordable and accessible with compassion and dignity for all people. We take pride in this mission and are privileged to serve it day after day…. But it does take a village!

The Tandem Fund was created in 2018 to allow members of our community to contribute financially towards our efforts. Each and every dollar contributed to the Tandem Fund further strengthens our capacity to ensure the delivery of much needed healthcare services to those whom we have been given the opportunity to serve. To that end, it is important for you to know that the intent of the Tandem Fund is not to build wealth for our organization, but rather to establish a solid financial base utilized for the creation, enhancement and enrichment of programs and initiatives that support our patients and the community.

If you would like to become a Tandem Fund partner, we would love to hear from you! Please email Curt Ackerman at cackerman@tandemhealthsc.org. We thank you for your support and willingness to become a partner in our community’s well-being.
