KH board to start process of creating Capella advisory board
KershawHealth Logo
When Capella Healthcare of Franklin, Tenn., and MUSC Health -- the patient care arm of the Medical University of South Carolina -- take over operations of KershawHealth, the county’s public non-profit hospital will transition to a for-profit operation. Closing of the Capella/MUSC deal is currently scheduled for May 31. When that happens, the current KershawHealth Board of Trustees will move from creating and approving policy to administrating a multi-million dollar trust and ensuring Capella is meeting the terms of its pending 40-year lease agreement.
