UofSC Nursing alumni, Dr. Sheila Belton-Gaymon and Dr. Sandra Randolph, opened the doors to their women led, Primary Care Clinic, Ivy Health Solutions. The two nurse practitioners co-founded the clinic on North Main Street in Columbia, SC to help provide health care access to underserved surrounding communities.
We wish Ivy Health Solutions the best of luck and support our alumni as they provide access to healthcare in the local community!
