Greenville Health System (GHS) and Palmetto Health are becoming Prisma Health. We are one organization with affiliates in two regions, the Midlands and the Upstate. We no longer will use the interim name SC Health Company. Both affiliates will begin using the Prisma Health name and logo in early 2019. We will retire the legacy names and brands for GHS, Palmetto Health and our aligned entities as we move to one name and brand.
We are proudly designated as a BlueDistinction Center for knee and hip replacement by BlueCross BlueShield of South Carolina.
The interim parent company name, SC Health Company, will change immediately.
The new company brand and name will begin replacing the GHS and Palmetto Health brands and names in early 2019. However, campus and hospital names you’re familiar with will retain their core brand identities. Legacy hospital identities like Baptist, Greenville Memorial, Laurens, Richland and Tuomey will be included in the new names. Specific hospital names with the new brand will be introduced in early 2019.
