Our Executive Team


Tom Rouse

CEO & Founder

After 40 + years in the banking industry, Tom Rouse, CEO/Founder, recognized there was a need to open a multi-service Medical Facility.  This awareness came from his having to take his Father, a WWII veteran, to different locations to receive medical treatment.  The time, the duplication of medical information, the travel etc., made him realize that if it was difficult for him to manage doing this, then it was perhaps even more difficult for others. 

As a result, Regional Health and testing center was created.

Tom received his Associates Degree from Louisburg College, and his BS degree from the University of Alabama.

Tom resides in Florence, SC, after leaving NC. He is married, and has two Children and five grandchildren that he calls MAGIC!  Partially because the first initial in their names spell Magic, but because believes they truly are.
