A KershawHealth accreditation survey that reflects “the most favorable results I have seen in my many years as a healthcare CEO,” according to chief executive Donnie Weeks, is a positive sign for KershawHealth during a period of financial turmoil. The hospital’s financial struggles (as have those of many hospitals) have been well documented over the last couple years as the economy has taken a toll on elective surgeries and other procedures, so KershawHealth was in need of some good news. It got that in the form of a report from The Joint Commission, an independent, not-for-profit organization that certifies more than 19,000 healthcare organizations throughout the United States, including approximately 82 percent of the nation’s hospitals.
