Prisma Health Upstate is fortunate to have its own eight physician Med-Peds hospitalist group at Greer Memorial Hospital. Greer Memorial is a new 82-bed satellite facility located just 14 miles from downtown Greenville.
Our Med-Peds hospitalists provide inpatient care to patients of all ages in this beautiful and family-centered facility. From delivery coverage for newborn resuscitation to adult ICU care, routine newborn care to inpatient care across the age span, our Med-Peds hospitalists provide a wide variety of inpatient services to the residents of Greer and surrounding areas.
This hospitalist experience provides an outstanding opportunity for Med-Peds residents looking to combine internal medicine and pediatrics in their eventual careers. Small hospitals throughout the country are increasingly interested in Med-Peds hospitalists but few residency programs are able to offer a rotation such as this one that demonstrates the real-life workings of a dedicated Med-Peds hospitalist program.
This rotation is a requirement for all fourth year Med-Peds residents at Prisma Health and is also available as an elective in the third year for those considering a career in hospital medicine. Senior residents rotating at Greer Memorial Hospital will learn about building a career in Med-Peds, from billing to quality care initiatives to procedures such as stress tests and central line placement.
