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.

Check Out Little Eyes

Help your child see her way to success. Good vision is vital for your child to function well in academics, athletics and the arts. But it’s easy to miss vision problems in children and adolescents. That’s why a comprehensive eye exam is important.

Early detection and treatment provide the best opportunity to correct vision problems, so your child can see clearly and reach his or her full potential.

On-site Credit Program

The GHS Eye Institute now offers patients a credit program that can be used toward non-covered expenses and services. Patients can apply for $500 or more to pay for glasses and/or services such as Lasik and cosmetic eye procedures. This program is offered through Wells Fargo. Patients complete the application at the Eye Institute and submit it to the practice’s financial counselor, who will have an answer for them within minutes. Authorized funds are placed in a hold status until the procedure is complete or glasses are delivered. Any excess credit approved by Wells Fargo can be used at any participating medical provider, including non-GHS providers, for other non-covered medical expenses.
