Hi Caraffe1, I just found the time to get back on. Huby has been in hospital and that's put me way out of sorts for computer time.
Aiken...hmmm. I live about 25 mi from there. It is a beautiful town. The whole of Aiken County is lovely. However, there is only one hospital in the county. They do have a good ER, and inpatient facility, and my mother was a patient there many times before she passed away. The hospital is private, situated just across from University of SC-Aiken Campus a full 4 year excellent school. Aiken county is called "Thoroughbred Country."
Just across the Savannah River are I believe 5 major hospitals in Augusta GA. My niece works at University Hospital and Loves it. The Medical College of Georgia (It has a new name now...hmmm) is also a huge facility.
Now I've said all that, my whole career orientation has been towards Columbia, and though Aiken is my county seat, I know virtually nothing about it.
(I could tell you reams about Columbia though.)
Let me do some research through my niece and see if I can find out what you want. Meanwhile SCiWay.gov is a site that features South Carolina jobs, leisure, county and town information etc.
