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.

Clinic Visits

If your child is coming to a Children’s Hospital clinic appointment, there are some things you should know to make the experience as positive and pleasant as possible for you and your child.

Length of Your Child’s Visit

Please allow ample time for your child’s appointment—typically, one to two hours. Your physician will spend as much time as needed to ensure that your child receives the appropriate level of care.

The following list will help you remember items and information to bring with you to your child’s clinic visit.

  • Doctor or specialist’s name

  • Name and telephone number of referring physician, if applicable
  • Referrals and authorizations from your child’s primary care doctor’s office
  • Insurance card(s)
