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.

GHS Cancer Institute

Providing the Most Effective Care

Close to Home

At the Cancer Institute of Greenville Health System (GHS), our core philosophy is anchored in providing the most effective, most targeted cancer care available in the world. We are dedicated to enhancing the quality of life for those with cancer in our community and beyond through clinical excellence and research. We understand that cancer care is about comfort, compassion and enhanced access to care, so we focus on treating the whole person, not just the disease. This means patients do not have to leave the Upstate to receive high-quality cancer care. In fact, many people travel to GHS Cancer Institute from outside our state to receive care.

“I Had No Idea!”

“Mom was active at 83—right up until she was diagnosed with cancer. During the next five years of treatments and hospital stays, one thing stands out: the amazing kindness and compassion of the doctors, nurses and staff of the GHS Cancer Institute.

The care she received inspired us to give back. Then we learned about the blood and marrow transplant (BMT) unit—and how having the unit right here means patients don’t leave families, homes and jobs for weeks at a time. I had no idea…”
