Palmetto Medical Group

Palmetto Medical Group has joined Beaufort Memorial Hospital’s growing network of health care providers serving patients south of the Broad.

Our six providers, Internist Dr. Scott Cummings, Family Medicine Physicians Drs. Lynn Goetze and Kamal Patel, Physician Assistants Stephanie Lovato and Erica Roper, and Family Nurse Practitioner Jennifer Stokes, have become official members of Beaufort Memorial Physician Partners effective July 1, 2020.

“We’re very excited to add such experienced physicians and advanced practice providers to our team,” BMH President and CEO Russell Baxley said. “Providing access to high quality primary care is critical to Beaufort Memorial’s mission to enhance the quality of life in the Lowcountry through improved health, innovative partnerships and superior care.”

The practice, which has been renamed Beaufort Memorial Palmetto Medical Group, will remain at its current location at 4818 Bluffton Parkway and can be reached at 843-706-0600.

“Recognizing the growing need for health care services in the southern part of Beaufort County, Beaufort Memorial has stepped up to meet the demand with an ambitious expansion plan that will benefit us all,” said Dr. Cummings. “Our patients will now have access to the specialist care available through the hospital and its affiliation with MUSC Health, as well as the ancillary services only a hospital can provide.”
