The Division of Forensic Pediatrics houses the South Carolina Children’s Advocacy Medical Response System (SCCAMRS), a program charged by the South Carolina Department of Health and Human Services to develop and manage clinical guidelines, quality standards and a comprehensive educational resource system to practice in the field of Child Abuse Pediatrics in the state.  In addition, the office receives state funding to administer a claim reimbursement program for forensic medical evaluations delivered by state healthcare providers meeting these qualification standards.  This allows the program to assist and support the state’s children’s hospitals and SC Network of Children’s Advocacy Centers in their efforts to continue and maintain access to these specialized medical services. 

If you are a healthcare provider with a child in need of a referral for an evaluation into allegations of abuse and/or neglect, the following is a list of the Children’s Advocacy Centers and similar multidisciplinary facilities in South Carolina and their contact information:
