Palmetto Health


Palmetto Health and the YMCA of Columbia have an active partnership to provide our community with easy access to quality health care and a healthy lifestyle. Here are just a few of the following ways our organizations are working together to build a community:

  • Palmetto Health conducts special screenings for YMCA members
  • Palmetto Health provide health-related educational programs at YMCA locations
  • YMCA provides special wellness programs for Palmetto Health team members and patients

In addition, in 2015 we opened a new location in Ballentine that includes a physician practice – Ballentine Family Medicine – collocated with Ballentine Family YMCA. This new type of facility is one of a national movement to provide patients with health care and wellness services in one place. The Ballentine facility also includes a wellness center, group exercise classes and a child watch area, as well as classroom space for health education and screenings. This unique model allows us to help our guests develop lifestyle habits that promote wellness and prevent disease.

Palmetto Health is a not-for-profit health care system, including seven Joint Commission-accredited acute-care hospitals with 1,548 licensed patient beds – Palmetto Health Baptist, Palmetto Health Baptist Parkridge, Palmetto Health Children’s Hospital, Palmetto Health Heart Hospital, Palmetto Health Richland, Palmetto Health Tuomey and Baptist Easley – as well as an expansive physician practice network, dozens of affiliated clinics and specialty care practices, and a 501(c)(3) foundation. We co-own and operate Baptist Easley Hospital with Greenville Healthcare System.
