About Palmetto Health

Welcome to Palmetto Health.

We’re on a journey to transform the health care experience for our patients and their families.

Palmetto Health is the largest and most comprehensive integrated health care system in the South Carolina Midlands region. Whether we’re providing emergency care, welcoming a baby into the world or mending a heart, our team is dedicated to working together to fulfill our Vision: To be remembered by each patient as providing the care and compassion we want for our families and ourselves.

When you’re here, you’ll remember how a simple touch eased your pain or how a nurse’s warm smile put your family at ease. Every time you visit Palmetto Health – in the hospital, at a physician’s office or for screening or diagnostic services – you’ll receive care to be remembered.

Our more than 15,000 team members and volunteers, and more than 1,000 physicians, are here to care for you throughout our Palmetto Health hospital system, which includes:
