The Center for Pediatric Medicine (CPM) and its affiliated sites including the North Greenville Outpatient Center (NGOC), CPM-West, and The Ferlauto Center for Complex Pediatric Care provide the medical home for more than 22,000 children of the upstate. The patients served by CPM are 95% Medicaid and represent the diversity of Greenville’s population, including approximately 45% Hispanic patients. With the main site conveniently located across the street from the main hospital campus, CPM represents the largest Medicaid clinic in the state and sees approximately 50,000 visits a year. The NGOC site serves the smaller community of Travelers Rest and CPM-West was recently added to provide a location more convenient to that underserved community.
CPM and all the affiliated sites have received the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) designation as Patient-Centered Medical Homes. The physicians and staff at CPM are dedicated to continually improving the well-being of South Carolina’s children through innovative programs and partnerships. Examples of these include the award winning family centered Asthma Program, the Centering Pediatrics program for new mothers, bringing psychiatrists and behavioral health specialists into the clinic to meet these growing needs, promoting literacy through Reach out and Read, and promoting nutritional health as a distribution site for Foodshare-Greenville which offers seasonal, locally-grown fruits and veggies purchasable with $5 of SNAP/EBT benefits.

Subspecialty Clinics and Affiliated Sites:
Although Children’s Hospital is centered at Greenville Memorial Hospital, outpatient subspecialty services are available at the Children’s Hospital Outpatient Centers, with locations in Greenville and Spartanburg. These centers house most of the Children’s Hospital specialties including cardiology, developmental behavioral pediatrics, endocrinology, gastroenterology, infectious disease, nephrology & hypertension, neurology, ophthalmology, pain medicine, pulmonology, rheumatology, sleep medicine and urology. Across the hall is the GHS Outpatient Center, which includes pediatric outpatient surgery and radiology along with laboratory services, so families can schedule medical related visits in one location. The GHS Outpatient Center is the first such center in the state designed specifically for children. The family-centered environment features a staff trained and credentialed in the care of children, age-appropriate waiting playrooms, and child-friendly protocols.
In addition to GHS pediatric subspecialists, our residents have the opportunity to rotate with the renowned Greenwood Genetics Center which has a long history of providing genetics services across South Carolina, the United States and the world. Research at GCC focuses on taking bold and deliberate steps into genetic and genomic medicine with a commitment to advancing the diagnosis, treatment, prevention, and cure of genetic disorders.
