A Time of Great Promise
Thanks to the generosity of so many in our community, we are blessed in Kershaw County to have excellent healthcare right here where we all live and work.
That is why we are inviting you to become a member of The Baruch Society by making a contribution of $1,000 or more to the KershawHealth Foundation. As a member, you join that special group of people who give generously from their own financial resources for the good of all in our community.
It was just that kind of commitment that enabled the Foundation to make a grant of just over $675,000 to fund a new nurse call/patient monitoring system for the KershawHealth Medical Center. This new advanced technology will elevate the care of every patient at the hospital every day, all day, every day of the year, for years and years to come.
With your support, the Foundation will be able to fund other such improvements to healthcare in Kershaw County as opportunities present themselves in the future.
With a gift of $1,000 dollars or more, we will induct you as a member of The Baruch Society, you will receive an invitation to the annual Members’ Dinner on Thursday evening, November 13th. This year’s speaker is Tony Keck, Director of the South Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS).Learn more
Mr. Keck’s visit is significant because KershawHealth recently received a grant of $2.5 million from DHHS to develop and implement a community-based initiative to improve the health of our community. This collaboration includes the USC Arnold School of Public Health, the Community Medical Clinic of Kershaw County, Access Kershaw (funded by a $1 million grant from The Duke Endowment), and the Kershaw County School District. The vision is to develop a model that other communities can use to improve the overall health of their populations.
It’s a time of great promise for healthcare in Kershaw County.
