35th Anniversary

In September, we celebrated the 35th birthday of Palmetto Health Children’s Hospital

We are so thankful for the physicians, nurses, staff and team members who dedicate their lives to caring for children.

Palmetto Health Children's Hospital was South Carolina’s first children’s hospital, founded on Sept. 28, 1983, as a hospital-within-a-hospital on the 9th floor of what was then called Richland Memorial Hospital, now Palmetto Health Richland.

Thanks to the vision and dedication of 35 physicians, 40 board members, a nine-member administrative medical committee and a network of community leaders, children’s health care needs are now treated in an environment created especially for them.

Because the best care matters
