Comprehensive care for infectious and immunologic diseases in children
Our team of pediatric infectious disease physicians at Prisma Health Children's Hospital in Columbia specialize in comprehensive treatment for new, recurring or persistent conditions in children caused by infectious organisms.
We offer consultations for children and young adults across the state of South Carolina, from the Midlands region to the Pee Dee (a 17-county referral area), and facilitate the area's only comprehensive HIV/AIDS program for children.
