Camden, SC — Kershaw County

KershawHealth dba The Health Services District of Kershaw County is using a bond issue in the amount of $33 million through the South Carolina Jobs-Economic Development Authority (JEDA) to build a new skilled-nursing facility in Camden.

The 132-bed facility will use the proceeds of the Residential Care Facilities Revenue Bonds to replace and expand its current 96-bed facility that will retain 111 existing jobs and create 37 new positions at the facility to be located at 100 Knights Hill Road.

“Tax-exempt financing like this is critical to our ability to grow the availability of this level and quality of care to this vulnerable population in Kershaw County, and we’re pleased it was available.”
