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.

Child Abuse Pediatrics

Child Abuse Pediatrics at Palmetto Health Children's Hospital provides comprehensive medical evaluations for children and adolescents who are suspected victims of any form of child maltreatment.

With a full complement of skilled child abuse providers, the Family Services Center has the ability to see children sooner, including children who have been placed in emergency protective custody. The primary source of referrals are law enforcement and the Department of Social Services; however, if a physician has a concern that a child has been abused or neglected, please call us.
