Pulmonary, Critical Care and Sleep Medicine

Our pulmonology specialists at Prisma Health can help improve your lung function with the right diagnosis and therapy. We take the time to listen and consult with you and, if needed, they can refer you to one of our subspecialty clinics.

Breathe better, feel better

Because pulmonary conditions often overlap with heart disease, it’s good to know that Prisma Health has achieved the American Heart Association’s Gold Level Award for hypertension control. In fact, we’re the first and only hospital in South Carolina to offer a pulmonary hypertension program.
