Strategic partnerships -- what are they?

KershawHealth's Strategic Plan, approved by the board of trustees earlier this year, makes it clear that various alliances are essential to the organization's future success in caring for our community. We must recognize that there are 13 not-for-profit and investor-owned hospitals within a 50-mile radius of Kershaw County and that, more specifically, KershawHealth competes with large healthcare systems in the Columbia metropolitan area. An openness to new ideas and new ways of partnering in a rapidly-evolving healthcare environment is the only strategy for success.

Are you wasting your money?

Ever since I was a child, I have been tight with money. I learned from an early age to work hard for my living, and I became very cautious about what I spent my hard-earned money on.

I knew what I wanted, and I didn't want "buyer's remorse." This trait has served me well into adulthood. I am not an expert with money, but I ...

A Halloween party for young children

A British mother once asked me how to celebrate Halloween without witches and creepsters that frightened her little child. I suggested switching the iconic witch with Mother Goose who has been entertaining children for centuries. Why include witches, monsters and "things that go bump in the night" when you can have fun with friendly and familiar faces that don't scare your little ones?
