The Duke Endowment recently awarded a two-year, $500,000 grant to KershawHealth to expand Access Kershaw’s community network of care for low-income, high risk patients in Kershaw County, many of whom are uninsured. Access Kershaw is a strategic partnership between KershawHealth, Kershaw County Community Medical Clinic, Sandhills Medical Foundation, S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control, S.C. Department of Mental Health, and the ALPHA Center. “KershawHealth has a long and productive relationship with all of these groups, and it has been gratifying to see the interplay that led to the development of Access Kershaw,” noted former KershawHealth CEO Donnie Weeks when the grant was awarded.
