The new partnership makes this clinical service available for six elementary schools in the Sumter School District. Students with non-emergency health needs will be instantly connected to a Palmetto Health or MUSC health nurse practitioner or pediatrician and have prescriptions sent to their pharmacy of choice following the visit.
“Palmetto Health is committed to helping improve the lives of our children and communities beyond our hospital walls,” said Chief Community Health Services Officer Vince Ford. “This partnership extends our reach to more communities through remote access to health care education. It starts early. Healthy children create healthier communities.”
