Department of Public Health

Formerly a part of DHEC, DPH provides public health services, health care quality improvements, and resources to everyone in South Carolina.

The South Carolina Department of Public Health (DPH) was created by the state Legislature with the DHEC Restructuring Act of 2023 (Act 60). It is the health component of the agency formerly known as DHEC. The agency officially launched on July 1, 2024.​ This work is implemented by a talented and dedicated team of employees who serve within DPH’s two core divisions:

Health Promotion and Services promotes community health and well-being by protecting people from disease, illness and injury, as well as providing access to quality care.

Healthcare Quality enhances patient safety and the quality of care by leading efforts to make health care in South Carolina safer, more accessible, equitable, and of higher quality.

In addition, Administration provides the divisions and teams with the necessary support to ensure the successful accomplishment of the agency's mission and vision.
