Tandem Health, formerly Sumter Family Health Center, is a community health center providing comprehensive, affordable care to thousands of patients within Sumter and surrounding communities. Tandem Health’s mission focuses on ensuring that everyone in the Sumter community has access to high – quality health care and revolves around their commitment to building a healthy community by improving the health and well-being of each person served.
The history of Tandem Health details a story of continuous growth that has been in direct proportion to the health needs identified in the community since 2003. From its origin as a safety net provider operating out of a single site on West Liberty Street to its current operation of a multi-site primary care and multi-specialty practice with 220 plus employees serving more than 15,000 patients annually, Tandem Health has continued to grow in response to the health needs of patients and their families.
As a community health center, Tandem Health also works with patients to help eliminate barriers related to financial circumstances and/or social situations that often have a negative impact on their access to quality healthcare. By addressing such barriers, patients and families are ensured the provision of comprehensive health care and social services regardless of their ability to pay. Providing patients with the compassionate care they need all the while treating them with dignity and respect is what has enabled Tandem Health to thrive over the years.
