Our Affiliate System

We are building one organization with affiliates in two regions. Our parent company, now known as Prisma Health, supports both affiliates with overall direction and leadership as we continue to align. We will soon share one brand across the entire organization to better reflect this. The rebranded Palmetto Health-USC Medical Group will continue to operate as a joint venture between the Midlands affiliate and the USC School of Medicine.

Based on these findings, a variety of tests may be performed (at a later date) in order to establish a diagnosis.

Parents and children are encouraged to ask questions of the doctor throughout the care process.
