During a short special called meeting Thursday evening, the KershawHealth Board of Trustees voted unanimously to do something it has not done since 1993: vote to change what law firm provides the board -- and the healthcare organization’s -- legal services. For 21 years, those services have been provided by Nexsen Pruet of Columbia, most recently represented by attorney Jeanne Born. The board voted Thursday to authorize a contract with Parker Poe, with offices in Columbia, Charleston and Spartanburg in South Carolina; and Charlotte and Raleigh in North Carolina; as well as a satellite office in Washington, D.C. In addition to Parker Poe and Nexsen Pruet, the law firm of Nelson, Mullins, Riley & Scarborough also vied to provide KershawHealth’s legal services.
