Palmetto Health Baptist Hospital, which was founded in 1914, has a rich history based on a mission of Christian service. Much of Palmetto Health Baptist’s success over the past 90 plus years is attributable to its strong and dedicated leadership. There have been only three presidents — W. M. Whiteside, William A. Boyce and Charles D. Beaman Jr. — a continuity of administration of which very few healthcare systems can boast.

Today Palmetto Health Baptist Columbia operates at a capacity of 489 acute care beds with some 2,900 full- and part-time employees, nearly 700 physicians and 500 volunteers. Palmetto Health Baptist is regarded as one of the best equipped and up-to-date hospitals in the Southeast.
