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.

Catherine Tucker

Just after Easter in 2014 Catherine Tucker of Lexington was diagnosed with leukemia.

Her baby brother, Conor, was just three weeks old when Catherine had her first chemotherapy treatment. “It has been tough,” said Catherine’s mom, Sara Tucker. “You do what you have to do to cure your child. God has gotten us through this, along with the excellent team at the Children’s Cancer and Blood Disorders Center at Children’s Hospital.” Catherine’s treatment lasted two years, three months and three weeks and her family recently celebrated the end of treatment at a joyous gathering with the physicians, nurses, Child Life team and staff. “Catherine is the happiest kid and Dustin (Catherine’s dad) and I are so thankful for the care she received,” said Tucker.
