Living in black and white

One Sunday while sitting around the dinner table, Louise and I began to tell Daddy stories, the ones that stretched back to the early days of his preaching life.

Strategic partnerships and alliances

KershawHealth's strategic plan, approved by the KershawHealth Board of Trustees earlier this year, makes it clear that alliances and partnerships are essential to the organization's future success in caring for our community.

An openness to new ideas and new ways of partnering in a rapidly-evolving healthcare environment is the only strategy for success.
