Greenville Health System
Greenville Health System (GHS) is a public not-for-profit academic healthcare delivery system committed to medical excellence through clinical care, education and research. The organization is governed by a volunteer board made up of 14 members. Our Mission: Heal compassionately. Teach innovatively. Improve constantly. Our Vision: Transform health care for the benefit of the people and communities we serve. Our Values: Together we serve with integrity, respect, trust and openness.
GHS first opened its doors as City Hospital back in 1912. Over the last 100 years, the organization has evolved from a single free-standing hospital to a highly integrated delivery system and now an academic medical center. In that time, GHS has become the state’s largest not-for-profit healthcare system and an advocate for healthy living initiatives, such as LiveWell Greenville, the GHS Swamp Rabbit Trail and Greenville B-cycle, the city’s new bike share program. We are a health resource for our community and a leader in transforming the delivery of health care for the benefit of the people and communities we serve.

University of South Carolina School of Medicine Greenville
The South Carolina School of Medicine Greenville is located on the Greenville Memorial Medical Campus of the Greenville Health System (GHS). For more than a century, GHS has served the medical needs of the South Carolina Upstate by providing compassionate, comprehensive patient care and training future caregivers. In 1990, this invigorating environment motivated the University of South Carolina (USC) to create a regional campus at GHS for its Columbia medical school, where a portion of its third and fourth-year medical students perform their clinical education. Building on that successful program, the decision was made to expand the Greenville medical campus to a four-year, separately accredited medical school. In 2012, this synergistic partnership between the state’s largest university and the state’s largest public hospital, the USC School of Medicine Greenville, welcomed its charter class!
