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.

Family Advisory Council

Committed to working together to help improve patient- and family-centered care

We are excited to introduce our revitalized Children’s Hospital Family Advisory Council. This council is comprised of our patient’s parents and caregivers who are actively using Palmetto Health Children’s Hospital outpatient and inpatient services. The group is committed to working together with Palmetto Health Children’s Hospital to help improve patient- and family-centered care. Our council meets monthly and would welcome ideas from you for their involvement in both inpatient and outpatient areas of care. If you have projects for them or information to present to our council, please contact Mary Ann Ferris, our Family Centered Care Coordinator, or complete the Agenda Request Form in order to obtain a spot on the monthly meeting agenda.
