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.

Critical Care Medicine

Pediatric Critical Care Medicine (PCCM) treats infants who have life-threatening conditions after discharge from the newborn nursery or NICU through adolescence. Pediatric intensivists undergo post-residency training covering all forms of pediatric intensive care.

Conditions treated

Conditions treated include all those requiring intensive monitoring such as:

  • Severe shock

  • Asthma

  • Seizures

  • Trauma

  • Respiratory failure

  • Children with special needs who are on chronic life support

Patients who require deep sedation for therapeutic and diagnostic procedures also are cared for by pediatric intensivists.
