Welcome to the
Center for Health Services and Policy Research

Our center is focused on research and public service designed to improve the practices of the health care delivery system and the health policies of South Carolina and beyond. Because we are interested in reaching out to the larger community, most of our projects are conducted in partnership with State agencies, professional organizations, advocacy groups, or health care providers. You may learn more about the Center and its history by clicking About Us. By clicking Projects you may view funded projects underway in the Center as well as previous projects that have been completed. In each case, our focus is on fostering and conducting applied research and evaluation that ultimately will make a difference in the lives of South Carolinians.

As you peruse our website, you will see that the Center, although still young, is firmly established on a growth path and is becoming widely known and respected as a statewide resource for health services research and policy analysis. If you would like to know more about the individuals who comprises the Center’s staff, I invite you to click Faculty and Staff, where you will find a brief biographical sketch of each of us along with information about how to contact us.

Thank you for your interest and enjoy your visit.



The Center exists to coordinate and conduct research designed to promote accessibility of health care services and to inform public policy in a manner that has a positive impact on the health-related quality of life of South Carolinians.
