About Palmetto Health
Palmetto Health is the largest health care system in the South Carolina Midlands region and third largest non-governmental employer in South Carolina. We are composed of more than 10,000 team members, physicians and volunteers 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.
Our system includes five acute-care hospitals — Palmetto Health Baptist, Palmetto Health Baptist Parkridge, Palmetto Health Children’s Hospital, Palmetto Health Heart Hospital and Palmetto Health Richland — as well as an expansive physician practice network, dozens of affiliated clinics and specialty care practices and a 501(c)(3) foundation.
Palmetto Health Baptist Parkridge, the region’s newest hospital located in northwest Columbia, opened in spring 2014. Recognized nationally as one of the best places to work and receive care, Palmetto Health also trains the next generation of physicians through its 23 residency and fellowship programs affiliated with the University of South Carolina School of Medicine.
