Steven A. Caywood has been named executive director of Mental Health America of Beaufort/Jasper counties. Caywood replaces Steve Maglione, who retired at the end of December 2021.

Caywood has more than 30 years of health care experience at the executive level prior to establishing an active health care consulting practice. He previously served as CEO of two hospitals in Pennsylvania before serving as CEO of Hilton Head Hospital prior to its purchase by Tenet Health.

Mental Health America, and its Island House program, was founded as a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization on Hilton Head in 1976. The program provides day treatment for people with mental illness, where clients learn new skills to help them maintain good mental health and work toward recovery. 

Island House is located in Bluffton. For more information, call 843-757-3900.

Be Prepared, a business continuity planning seminar, will be held from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Jan. 24 on the USCB Hilton Head Campus, 1 Sand Shark Drive. The event is presented by the Hilton Head Island/Bluffton Chamber of Commerce.

No one expects a fire, natural disaster, or another emergency – but we can be prepared. MGT 381 is an 8-hour, DHS/FEMA certified tuition-free planning and management-level course.

Topics include continuity planning process, essential functions, business impact analysis, recovery strategies and plan development.

The workshop is suitable for government staff and elected officials, private sector security and safety personnel, public works staff, emergency management personnel, community stakeholders, retail representatives, and food production manager.

Registration is required. For more information, visit

• The Sea Pines Resort is launching a recruitment drive to hire as many as 140 new employees in advance of the re-opening of The Quarterdeck restaurant in early April.

Newly redeveloped, the restaurant will have an expansive wrap around deck, indoor bar and dining area on the first floor, and a new rooftop oyster bar offering 270-degree views of the Harbour Town Yacht Basin and Calibogue Sound. A casual, walk-up market on the ground level will serve as a place to grab a quick bite to go or to stock up on provisions for the day. The addition of a boardwalk will direct pedestrian flow to the market and pier, creating a gathering spot in this prime waterfront setting.

For the next three months, the resort will be hiring managers, servers, bartenders, hosts and hostesses, sous chefs, line cooks, kitchen stewards, and bussers. Almost all food-and-beverage positions will include sign-on bonuses.

In addition to receiving applications online, the resort will be hosting job fairs in Sea Pines each of the next three months:

• Jan. 27, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 4 to 7 p.m., Magnolia Room, 100 N. Sea Pines Drive

• Feb. 21, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 4 to 7 p.m., Champions Ballroom, 11 Lighthouse Lane

• March 19, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., Champions Ballroom, 11 Lighthouse Lane

Applicants should visit to review available jobs, plus benefits and privileges. In addition to competitive wages, The Sea Pines Resort offers health, dental, vision, and other insurance options after a 60-day waiting period; free golf on two of the resort’s award-winning golf courses (cart fee applies); free tennis and recreation privileges; employee retail discounts; and a strong 401(k) with company match and profit sharing following one year of service.
