In late April, the Health Foundation of Kershaw County (HFKC) handed out its first five grants under its new program to award grants to 501(c)(3) corporations which demonstrate a positive impact on the overall health of Kershaw County residents. The foundation previously advanced healthcare quality through the funding of capital improvements projects at KershawHealth. The foundation changed its name -- and the way it met its mission -- after KershawHealth became part of Capella Healthcare in collaboration with MUSC Health.
