Jones targets KershawHealth at Tuesday KCC meeting
Placeholder Image
A proposal to purchase two ambulances for KershawHealth escalated into a strong rebuke of the healthcare organization by Kershaw County Councilman Jimmy Jones during a council meeting Tuesday despite joining a unanimous vote to approve the measure. Jones criticized KershawHealth’s financial decision-making ahead of the vote, particularly questioning the need to use taxpayer dollars to buy the two vehicles. He focused his criticism on the compensation levels of the hospital’s administration and said he wished KershawHealth would have cut the salary levels of their “CEOs” in order to save money.
