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.

Pediatric Infectious Disease

The physicians at Pediatric Infectious Disease have a broad range of clinical expertise in childhood infectious and inflammatory disorders. We see patients both in clinic and in the hospital who have or are suspected to have severe, unusual, recurrent or resistant infections. We also evaluate and manage patients with immunodeficiency, unexplained fever, recurrent fever, and other inflammatory conditions.

These conditions include:

  • Recurrent infections, such as pneumonia, sinus infections, and skin infections
  • Resistant infections
  • Immunodeficiencies, in addition to HIV
  • Bone and joint disease
  • Heart infections
  • GI infections
  • Urinary tract infections
  • Fevers of unknown origin

In addition, we offer the following programs:

Sue Jue, MD leads the International Adoption Clinic. Services provided include pre- and post-adoption consultation. We also provide screening services for infectious diseases and establish catch-up vaccine plans as needed. Families may refer themselves to the International Adoption Clinic.

Pediatric HIV Clinic

The Pediatric HIV Clinic provides a full range of services to children and adolescents with HIV infection. We also care for children born to HIV infected mothers. We are available to HIV infected families who are considering starting a family or who may already be pregnant to discuss strategies to prevent HIV transmission to their unborn child and what to expect after their child is born.

Appointments with Pediatric Infectious Disease are available by physician referral only.

For any of these services, physician offices may call our office at (864) 454-5130 or contact the on-call physician to coordinate more urgent referrals or to discuss the care of their patient.

We can often accommodate same or next day appointments when needed.
