The KershawHealth Board of Trustees is calling a special meeting for 6 p.m. today at the Health Resource Center on Battleship Road in Camden. The special meeting could signal a finalization of an agreement with Capella Healthcare of Franklin, Tenn., and MUSC Health -- the patient care arm of the Medical University of South Carolina -- to take over KershawHealth's operations. The move would convert KershawHealth from a public hospital overseen by the board, which is appointed by Kershaw County Council, to a for-profit enterprise.
