Sandhills Pediatrics and Palmetto Pediatrics, two of the largest independent pediatric practices in the Midlands region of South Carolina, have joined forces to create South Carolina Pediatric Alliance. Their goal is to deliver high quality care while gaining efficiencies of scale, reducing costs, and maintaining the independence of their practices.
Kevin Wessinger, MD, and Debbie Greenhouse, MD, have been called the yin and yang of pediatricians. Dr. Wessinger, president of Sandhills Pediatrics, has business acumen and a strong interest in the financial side of pediatrics. Dr. Greenhouse, one of the owners of Palmetto Pediatrics, has one foot in the world of state policy and advocacy, and has built a practice around serving children with special needs. In the not too distant past, they were considered competitors in the marketplace of pediatricians in the Midlands region of South Carolina.
Now, thanks to some out-of-the-box thinking and a willingness to take a risk to ensure their independent practices continue to thrive, they are collaborators and co-founders of a pediatric alliance they see as a model organization for all pediatricians in South Carolina.
