• A new study shows that dementia is going to be even a bigger problem than originally thought, estimating that 135 million people will have the disorder by 2050; that's a 17 percent increase above previous predictions.

These new figures are a stark reminder that for all its advances, medicine is still an inexact science.

That's no doubt been made more difficult by the turmoil surrounding the facility's top management and board. Now, with a new executive having been hired to run KershawHealth on a temporary basis, it's time to focus on returning the hospital to profitability and "settling things down."
