Prisma Health reopens North Greenville Hospital’s emergency department, located at 807 N. Main St.
Through a public-private partnership between Prisma Health and Greenville County, the county approved $13.49 million in a one-time federal COVID-19 relief fund in September. The emergency department closed in 2020 after the hospital was used as a COVID-19 unit, with the space being used since as walk-in primary care.
“Prisma Health is committed to meeting the health care needs of the communities we serve, and we are excited about offering emergency services in North Greenville,” said Prisma Health Chief Operating Officer Clarence Sevillian. “This reopening is possible because of this partnership between Greenville County and Prisma Health, and our shared commitment to encourage the health and wellbeing of all people in the North Greenville community.”
After being updated, the ED space features:
- Eight patient-treatment rooms
- A critical-care trauma room
- New medical equipment
- An updated computer and IT support
- An expanded ambulance bay
The ED will be open 24/7. Walk-in Care North Greenville, once located in the ED when COVID-19 hit, will reopen in a larger space on the North Greenville Hospital campus in the spring.
“This major investment by the county in the Prisma Health North Greenville Hospital Emergency Department ensures that residents will have convenient access to 24/7 emergency department care. This public-private partnership is a wonderful example of how a community can come together to find creative solutions,” said Dan Tripp, chairman of the Greenville County Council.
