COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - As of Jan. 16, the medical centers and hospitals under the brands of Palmetto Health and Greenville Health Systems are officially unified as Prisma Health.

The name changes were announced in September 2018. Campuses and hospitals will retain their core name identities, although it will take a year or more to change overall signage, printed materials, etc. As part of the new identity, the GHS, Palmetto Health and Palmetto Health-USC Medical Group brands, including their names and logos, will be retired. The Palmetto Health USC Medical Group timeline for their name transition will happen in 2020.

Here are the names for the hospitals.
