The plan for Kershaw County to take over the emergency medical service (EMS) July 1 continues to progress, as Kershaw County Council passed second reading on three ordinances Tuesday. EMS is presently provided by KershawHealth, which is working out final details of a deal to have the hospital’s real estate assets leased to and furniture, fixtures and equipment purchased by Capella Healthcare of Franklin, Tenn. Capella would operate the hospital partnership with the Medical University of South Carolina.
