Prisma Health expands healthcare access with new Medical Park in Northeast Columbia

Columbia, South Carolina – As South Carolina grows rapidly, Prisma Health is strengthening its dedication to providing top-notch, cost-effective healthcare by opening extensive Medical Parks in local communities. Prisma Health is enhancing outpatient care availability along the I-77/Killian Road area with a new site, the Northeast Columbia Medical Park. This new facility is part of Prisma Health’s goal to address the changing healthcare needs of the Midlands region.

“Our mission at Prisma Health is to ensure that everyone in our communities has access to exceptional healthcare,” said Clarence Sevillian, Prisma Health executive vice president and chief operating officer. “The opening of the Northeast Columbia Medical Park represents a significant milestone in expanding access to outpatient services, enabling us to deliver the same high-quality care in a more convenient and cost-effective manner.”

Situated on a 15-acre plot in the bustling I-77/Killian Road corridor, the Northeast Columbia Medical Park is ideally located to cater to the residents of Northeast Columbia, Blythewood, Winnsboro, and nearby areas. The design of the facility focuses on patient convenience and accessibility, featuring plenty of parking and easy access to public transport. The facility is expected to open in the Fall of 2025.

The Northeast Columbia Medical Park features:

  • Two Centers for Excellence – Cardiology and Orthopedics
  • Four state-of-the-art operating rooms enhancing access to same-day surgical procedures
  • 110 exam rooms, bringing more primary and specialty care services to the community

Michael Bundy, Prisma Health Midlands Market CEO, added, “Moving appropriate outpatient surgical cases from inside a large hospital campus to a more convenient and easy-to-access outpatient site provides many benefits to patients and their loved ones and helps add much-needed capacity for increased inpatient needs, so we can continue to provide the best care possible to all of our patients who count on us.”

The Medical Park acts as a central location for top primary and specialized healthcare services, including cardiology, orthopedics, physiatry, gastroenterology, vascular treatments, neurology, endocrinology, pain management, and behavioral health. It also provides essential primary care services like internal medicine, family medicine, and OB/GYN practices to the community.

Weiss, chief medical officer for Prisma Health Medical Group, Midlands, and chief academic officer. “The Northeast Columbia Medical Park exemplifies our commitment to offering a wide array of primary, specialty, and surgical services outside the traditional hospital setting, ensuring that patients receive care when and where they need it.”

Furthermore, the Northeast Columbia Medical Park is boosting the local economy of the Midlands. It is expected that over 250 team members will be employed at the facility upon completion. With an investment of $128 million in this project, Prisma Health continues to strengthen its support for the local communities.

“As one of the fastest-growing states in the nation, South Carolina is experiencing an increased demand for healthcare services,” said  Anthony Jackson, president of Prisma Health Baptist Hospital and vice president of external affairs. “The opening of the Northeast Columbia Medical Park underscores our dedication to meeting this demand while upholding the highest standards of care. We are excited to continue serving our community and expanding access to quality healthcare for all.”
