In the near future, low-income, uninsured residents of KershawCounty will have an easier time accessing healthcare services, thanks to a $750,000 AccessHealth SC grant recently awarded to KershawHealth by the Duke Endowment. "This won't add to our profit, but it will benefit the county," said KershawHealth President and CEO Donnie Weeks. According to a press release issued during the KershawHealth Board of Trustees' Aug. 23 meeting, KershawHealth will partner with the Community Medical Clinic, Sandhills Medical Foundation, ALPHA Center, S.C. Department of Mental Health and the S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control's Kershaw County Health Department.
