Customized care treatment plans

Our research team works closely with the rehabilitation team to select or design effective treatment plans for specific diagnoses. Our care is always evolving and we are committed to providing you with the best techniques. With multiple locations in Columbia and across the Midlands region of South Carolina, our physical and occupational therapy programs are designed around your specific needs.

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. Palmetto Health-USC Medical Group will be rebranded in late 2019 and will continue to operate as a joint venture between the Midlands affiliate and the USC School of Medicine.
