Greenville Memorial Hospital was ranked 50th in the U.S. News and World Report’s 2019-20 Best Hospitals for Gynecology list.

Prisma Health also had four other Upstate hospitals fall in the top 10% of hospitals in the nation for certain specialties, along with three high-performing hospitals in the Midlands.

“We are thrilled to be recognized among our peers as a leader in gynecology. It’s our privilege to care for women at some of the most exciting and challenging times in their lives,” Dr. Kacey Eichelberger, chair of OBGYN for Prisma Health–Upstate, said in a statement. “Whether we’re building a relationship at an annual wellness visit or utilizing our clinical expertise during a difficult pregnancy, our team members go above and beyond to become partners in our patients’ health.”

The U.S. News and World Report releases its Best Hospitals rankings each year based on 16 specialty areas: cancer; cardiology and heart surgery; diabetes and endocrinology; ear, nose and throat; gastroenterology and GI surgery; geriatrics; gynecology; nephrology; neurology and neurosurgery; orthopedics; pulmonology and lung surgery; urology; ophthalmology; psychiatry; rehabilitation; and rheumatology.

Out of more than 4,600 hospitals considered in the United States, only 165 were ranked in one or more specialty. The top 50 hospitals for each specialty are listed in the rankings, while the 117 other hospitals that also land in the top 10% of a specialty are considered high-performing.
