Greenville Area Health Systems
While we wish you good health always, we’ve got healthcare that is worth bragging about. Together, Shriners Hospitals for Children, Bon Secours Mercy Health, and Prisma Health provide experts in every specialty along with emergency and urgent care facilities. Stay well, but if you need it, we’ve got you covered.
Shriners Hospitals for Children - Greenville is one of the 22 hospitals internationally that devotes itself to improving the lives of children. The Greenville facility is dedicated to orthopedic and neuromuscular conditions. From the day it opened its doors in 1927 here in the Greenville area, the Shriners Hospital has drawn a large number of children and their families from across the Southeast. Today the 50-bed facility is a colorful, fun, and welcoming environment for healing children. The pediatric orthopedic facility includes two operating rooms, 15 outpatient exam rooms, an in-house prosthetics and orthotics department, a motion analysis center, physical, occupational, and recreational therapy departments, a KidZone complete with pool tables, video games, and air hockey, as well as a handicap-accessible playground.
Bon Secours Mercy Health first began in Greenville in 1932 as St. Francis Hospital—a private, not-for-profit hospital. In 2000, the St. Francis Health System became the Bon Secours Health System and has been growing and contributing to the community’s health ever since. Ever expanding, BSHS merged with Mercy Health in 2018 creating a new $8 billion health system: Bon Secours Mercy Health, which is now the nation's fifth-largest Catholic health system and one of America's 20 largest healthcare systems. If the French name sounds familiar (translation: "good help"), it’s because the health system is the naming sponsor of the city’s major arena—the Bon Secours Wellness Arena. Today, Bon Secours operates inpatient hospitals, medical groups, cancer centers, surgical centers, and urgent care locations across the area that can help keep you healthy whether you are a permanent resident or just visiting for a while.
Prisma Health is the area’s oldest (1912) and largest not-for-profit health organization in South Carolina. Now headquartered in Columbia, SC, Prisma Health was formerly known as the Greenville Health System (GHS) prior to its merger with Palmetto Health in 2017. In Greenville alone, Prisma has seven medical campuses, six hospitals, wellness, birthing, urgent care, and outpatient facilities. From preventive medicine and routine procedures to emergency and acute care to wellness education and complex surgeries, Prisma Health offers a full range of services. And, in an effort to improve the overall health of residents (and visitors, of course), Prisma is the naming sponsor of the 22-mile long Prisma Health Swamp Rabbit Trail—the perfect place for walking, jogging, or biking!
