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.
Our History 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.
GHS’ commitment to medical education has also advanced over the years, most notably with the recent opening of the University of South Carolina School of Medicine Greenville on GHS’ Greenville Memorial Medical Campus. This new medical school is focused on transforming healthcare delivery by training physicians to connect with communities, patients, colleagues and technology in a new, more progressive way.
