KershawHealth moves forward to transfer EMS services

KERSHAW COUNTY, SC (WIS) -

The transfer of KershawHealth's EMS services and the sale of the hospital are on the way to completion.

Last week, KershawHealth's board approved to transfer the EMS service to Kershaw County, which includes a $2.6 million payment to the County. This transfer includes all property, including ambulances, used to operate EMS. The full transfer will happen by July 1, according to Judy Ferrell, spokeswoman for KershawHealth.

Kershaw County Council approved a motion in February to take over the EMS service from KershawHealth. Council decided to approve this transfer only after the hospital said it would pay $2.6 million to help cover expenses to avoid taxpayers footing the bill.

KershawHealth is also still in negotiations with Capella/MUSC Health for the transfer of the hospital, which is separate from EMS services. Ferrell said this is taking longer than anticipated. However, Kershaw County Council and KershawHealth both unanimously approved extending the letter of intent between Capella/MUSC Health, the County, and the hospital until June 30. Ferrell anticipates the final documents will be signed by then.
