The Knights Hill Road entrance to Beechwood in May 2015. The Health Services District of Kershaw County -- the remaining public entity formerly attached to KershawHealth -- is purchasing the property for $500,000 to relocate and build a new state-of-the-art replacement for the long-operating Karesh Long Term Care and Rehabilitation Center. It hopes to open there sometime in 2020 or early 2021. - photo by C-I file photo
For years, citizens of Camden and Kershaw County have wondered about two things: Where would the operators of the Karesh Long Term Care Center relocate now that it is no longer part of KershawHealth? When would Beechwood on Knights Hill Road in Camden be transformed into something new? Those two questions have one answer: the Health Services District of Kershaw County (HSDKC) authorized Chairman Derial Ogburn on Monday night to sign a contract to purchase Beechwood so that what is often called the Karesh Wing can be relocated there into a “first-class, stand-alone facility.”
