Who We Are

The Palmetto Health Quality Collaborative is a regionally recognized clinically integrated system comprised of more than 520 physicians and two hospitals to drive targeted improvements in health care quality and efficiency. Since its inception in 2010, the Quality Collaborative has been committed to increasing the quality of care patients receive by setting higher performance and quality expectations for participating physicians.

Through our focus on prevention, optimal treatment of diseases and the coordination of care across the continuum, we are confident our efforts will continue to create value by improving outcomes for our patients and reducing costs for employers and payers.
