Dr. Jim Hayes, Board of Directors Chair and volunteer physician for Barrier Islands Free Medical Clinic, was featured recently in the May/June edition of Charleston’s Healthlinks Magazine. The piece, entitled “Doctors Who Give Back” by Anne Toole, highlighted the doctors who “make a difference in their patients’ lives every day” by contributing to their own community.

Dr. Hayes, who retired from his practice in internal medicine of 35 years in 2005, began volunteering for the Clinic when it opened its doors in 2009, serving uninsured adults who live or work on Johns, James or Wadmalaw Islands. Chairing the Board of Directors, Dr. Hayes has also continued to treat his patients weekly – a physician in popular demand by patients, and also remaining actively involved in every meeting and decision made for the free clinic.

Dr. Hayes was listed within the feature among four other notable area physicians, Dr. Eddie White Jr, of community musical venue Awendaw Green; Dr. Marcelo Hochman of The Hemangioma Foundation; and Drs Todd Vasko and Philip McGaha of Medical Campus Outreach.

You can read the entire piece in this month’s Healthlinks Magazine.
