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.

Intensive Care (PICU)

Pediatric Intensivists are pediatricians who undergo subspecialty training in critical care medicine. This fellowship is typically three years in duration and encompasses training that allows practitioners to be experts in a wide range of treatments. Some of those treatments include mechanical ventilation, treatment of shock, all forms of respiratory failure and focused post-operative care.

Conditions Treated

  • Respiratory failure of all etiologies (the cause of a disease or condition)

  • Shock

  • Severe dehydration

  • Organ system failure

  • Severe trauma

  • Neurologic diseases

Referral Information

Referrals are accepted from physicians, emergency departments, and hospital inpatient facilities. Call Palmetto Communications to speak directly to an intensivist: 1-800-757-4625; PICU: 803-434-8510.
