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.

35th Anniversary

In September, we celebrated the 35th birthday of Palmetto Health Children’s Hospital

We are so thankful for the physicians, nurses, staff and team members who dedicate their lives to caring for children.


Palmetto Health Children's Hospital was South Carolina’s first children’s hospital, founded on Sept. 28, 1983, as a hospital-within-a-hospital on the 9th floor of what was then called Richland Memorial Hospital, now Palmetto Health Richland.

Thanks to the vision and dedication of 35 physicians, 40 board members, a nine-member administrative medical committee and a network of community leaders, children’s health care needs are now treated in an environment created especially for them.

Because the best care matters
