About our practice

Palmetto Health-USC General and Hospital Pediatrics is dedicated to improving the health and well-being of the children of South Carolina through education, patient care and research. We provide comprehensive pediatric care to the children of Richland and Lexington counties as well as to patients in a 17 county referral area, coordinating patient care and teaching through our location and at Palmetto Health Children's Hospital.

Our services

We see more than 15,000 patient visits annually, oversee an active inpatient teaching and referral service at Children's Hospital and serve as the region's only pediatric hospitalist physician group.

In addition to these primary responsibilities, we are actively involved in a Duke Endowment-sponsored Adolescent School Health program, providing a medical home for children with complex special needs in the Special Care Center. Many of our providers are active in community projects and programs, and are widely recognized for commitment to and accomplishments in medical student and resident education.
