In the first of what it plans as a series of meetings held in different parts of the county, the KershawHealth Board of Trustees will hold a meeting tonight in the conference room of the Outpatient/Urgent Care Center at Elgin. The meeting will begin at 6 p.m. and is open to the public. Trustees and hospital administrators will be on hand one hour before the meeting begins, at 5 p.m., to speak to the public and answer questions on various topics, including KershawHealth’s strategic plan.

The Outpatient/Urgent Care Center at Elgin is in Wateree Executive Park on Whiting Way off White Pond Road near I-20 Exit 87.

Trustees plan to enter executive session -- which, according to the agenda, could last as long as two hours -- to hear from Capella Healthcare, one of two for-profit organizations the board has chosen to hear from concerning possible strategic partnerships. The board has yet to announce when Duke LifePoint will make a similar presentation.

Both companies’ headquarters are in the Nashville, Tenn., area. Capella recently announced it has entered into a “definitive agreement” to buy Carolina Pines Regional Medical Center in Hartsville. Duke LifePoint maintains a relationship with Lexington Medical Center’s heart center.

Tonight’s agenda will also include:

• a board quality committee report;

• a look at September’s financial report;

• a report on recent KershawHealth Foundation activity; and

• reports from Board Chair Karen Eckford and interim CEO Terry Gunn.

The board normally meets at the Health Resource Center on Battleship Road in Camden. Trustees agreed several months ago to schedule at least one meeting per quarter at other KershawHealth locations.
