Danny Wharton is noticeably proud of the changes in KershawHealth’s emergency department. Wharton, the healthcare organization’s director of ancillary and emergency services, took several people on a tour of the renovated space that now accommodates the hospital’s Express Care service. Express Care, developed through a partnership between KershawHealth and TeamHealth, allows emergency department (ED) staff to assess whether a patient is suffering a life-threatening condition or has less urgent complaints.
