2015 Year in Review - Part 3
Hospital goes private, epic flooding hits
Haile Street 2 - Martin Cahn iPhone
High water from a creek running from the Kendall Lake dam through Kendall Park goes under a bridge in early October on Haile Street next to the Haile Street Grill and KershawHealth. Crews had just finished monitoring the strong water flow, which had washed away two wooden footbridges, including a large one, up against the park side of the bridge. Crews moved the bridges out of the way so the park would not flood further on to Haile or nearby streets. - photo by C-I file photo
The last four months of 2015 would see a variety of events, including a change of hands for KershawHealth, epic flooding, and the third of three devastating deaths of Camden High School (CHS) students lost to car accidents. September At the end of a special called meeting August 29 and following a 90-minute executive session, the KershawHealth Board of Trustees unanimously resolved, 8-0, to authorize Chair Karen Eckford to execute and deliver final transaction documents for Capella CEO Michael Weichart’s signature. The vote came after four extensions of a letter of intent originally signed in December 2014, the transfer of emergency management services to Kershaw County and a request from Capella for the board to retain ownership of the Karesh Long Term Care Center.
