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.

We are becoming Prisma Health in early 2019

Team approach

It takes a team to conquer cancer. That’s why we bring together a group of experts – our Tumor Board – to review each patient’s options and unique circumstances and recommend an individual treatment plan.

Specialists who participate in the Tumor Board include:

  • Medical oncologist
  • Radiation oncologist
  • Surgeon
  • Pathologist
  • Radiologist

You can feel reassured that you’re not alone in this journey. Our specially trained Nurse Navigator helps guide and support patients throughout every step of their care. We also offer support groups to provide education and emotional support to patients and their families.


Because we understand that prevention and early detection are the most powerful tools our community has to combat cancer, Palmetto Health Tuomey is actively involved in outreach programs related to the disease. Our oncology team members regularly lead breast, prostate and skin cancer screenings, as well as bone marrow donor drives. They also present programs to the public to raise awareness of sickle cell, colon cancer and other oncology-related topics.
