Who owns KershawHealth?
Murky answer could affect possible future sale or lease of facilities
In early April, Kershaw County Council Chairman Gene Wise said he would “much rather look at other agencies than close down the hospital.” Wise made the comment during a presentation by KershawHealth President and CEO Donnie Weeks with Mike Bunch, the healthcare organization’s vice president and COO/CFO. That presentation ended with Weeks and Bunch asking the county to take over deficit funding of its emergency management services (EMS) program. Wise had asked what was happening in other communities across the region and mentioned a county hospital in Monroe, N.C., where Union County decided to lease the facility out following a financial crisis.
