KershawHealth negotiating new ED contract
Placeholder Image
At the end of its meeting Monday, following a somewhat lengthy executive session, the KershawHealth Board of Trustees voted unanimously to authorize KershawHealth administrators to negotiate and execute an agreement for emergency department services with TeamHealth. TeamHealth, a publically traded company headquartered in Knoxville, Tenn., touts itself as one of the country’s largest providers of healthcare professionals in both emergency and hospital medicine as well as anesthesia. With the new agreement, TeamHealth will take over management of KershawHealth’s emergency department physicians from Columbia-based Carolina Care.
