Hank Greer passes the gavel to new advisory board chairman Gary Cooper

May 04, 2020


Hank Greer’s steadfast service to the MUSC Health Heart & Vascular Center Advisory Board spans many productive years. Greer has served as chairman twice: a two-year term from 2016 to 2017 and a year-long term in 2019. Greer worked tirelessly to elevate the philanthropic efforts beyond measure and helped launch the campaign, The Path from Present to Future. His wife, Laurel, has been engaged as well. The Greers generously established the Jeffrey Winterfield Chair in Electrophysiology and are members of the MUSC Legacy Society.

We are truly grateful for Greer’s service, steadfast commitment, and stellar leadership.
