For the last several months, Ron Jones has been providing financial consultation and restructuring advice to Sea Island Comprehensive Health Care Corporation, a 501(c)(3) tax exempt, non-profit organization that delivers health care and human services to the residents of the Sea Islands and surrounding communities to sustain healthy lifestyles and living conditions. Services are primarily for the poor and indigent persons and include Home Health Care, Medical Adult Daycare, Home Hospice Care and Durable Medical Equipment.

For forty years, Sea Island has provided medical services to low income residents of Johns Island, James Island, Edisto Island, Wadmalaw Island, Yonges Island and surrounding communities in Charleston and Colleton Counties. In recent months, Sea Island has faced some critical financial decisions, lost its Executive Director and dealt with challenges that have threatened its mission to provide quality medical care and related services to the residents of the communities it serves, many of whom have no other access to such services. Calling on additional attorneys in the Financial Services (Rick Mendoza), Health Care (Jeanne Born) and Litigation Practice Groups (Bruce Wallace), Nexsen Pruet has provided quality legal advice that has enabled Sea Island to continue to honor its mission and provide much needed services to its constituents.
