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.

Cancer Facts

“I Had No Idea” is what we often hear when someone visits the GHS Cancer Institute. Time and again, visitors are amazed at the breadth, depth and quality of services, along with the advances in cancer treatment happening right here in Greenville, S.C.

Whether it’s the Cancer Institute overall or specifically its expansive team of physician and nursing specialists, renowned research, advanced radiation technology, comprehensive transplant unit or integrative survivorship center, the facts on these pages may cause you, too, to exclaim, “I Had No Idea!”

“In 2009, when tests revealed I had stage 1 ovarian cancer, we asked friends at national cancer centers for advise. They told us that one of the best gynecologic cancer surgeons was right here in Greenville. Within 10 days, Dr. Larry Puls had removed the tumor. Six chemotherapy treatments later, I was done–and ready to be done.

I wasn’t interested in Moving On, a program that GHS Cancer Institute offers to help cancer survivors overcome the fatigue that comes with treatment, but my husband pushed me to give it a try. So I did–and then wished I had gone sooner.

The program’s special trainers helped me with exercises that moved me on to the next place: a full life after cancer.”
