Greenville offers some of the best medical care available for its residents. It is served by two major healthcare systems with campuses and facilities throughout the community. 

In 2017, Greenville Health System and Palmetto Health merged forming Prisma Health, the largest not-for-profit health organization in South Carolina. It is widely recognized as the state’s most comprehensive healthcare provider and one of the Southeast’s leading medical facilities. 

The following hospitals in the Upstate are part of the Prisma Health System which is also the largest employers in the region:

It contains Greenville’s only 24-hour Level 1 trauma center and dedicated chest pain center, children’s hospital and ER, pediatric ICU, and highest level neonatal ICU. The cardiac and women’s services are also among the largest in the state.

Another health system in the Upstate is the Bon Secours St. Francis Health System. The following are the hospitals included in the system:
