KH, Capella seeking chief quality officer
Hospital also flattening management layers in advance of lease/purchase
Placeholder Image
When -- and all indications are it is a matter of when, not if -- Capella Healthcare completes its lease/purchase of KershawHealth, it will likely hire a position Kershaw County’s hospital has not had before: Chief Quality Officer (CQO). A letter of intent signed in December, and extended from March 31 to May 31, sets up Capella Healthcare to lease KershawHealth’s real estate for 40 years and purchase its furniture, fixtures and equipment for $36 million. That deadline is a little more than two weeks away, and Capella’s decision to begin seeking a CQO would appear to indicate there are little, if any, barriers to closing the deal shortly after the end of the month.
