To improve the health of people in our communities in a caring, cost-effective manner.
Greenville Health System Department of OB/GYN provides high quality care for women of all ages needing gynecologic and obstetric care.
The OB/GYN Center has been serving women in the Greenville community for 40 years. The practice is operated at a single site and provides prenatal care for more than 2,800 pregnant women annually, which makes it the single largest provider of prenatal care in South Carolina. The Center also offers primary care gynecology services to women.
Prenatal care for low-risk women is provided by five nurse practitioners and two certified nurse-midwives. High-risk patients are seen by resident physicians under the supervision of maternal-fetal medicine attending faculty. The Center has facilities on-site for laboratory testing, antenatal testing with non-stress test and limited ultrasound studies. Women requiring diagnostic prenatal ultrasound services are referred to the Maternal-Fetal Medicine practice. There is a full-time clinical nutrition specialist who provides diabetic education to our large population of patients with gestational diabetes. Telephone triage is available to patients 24 hours a day.
In addition to the prenatal care services, enrollment counselors for both South Carolina Medicaid and the WIC Program (Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children) are available on-site. Case management services are provided by three social workers, one of whom has a special interest in pregnant teenagers. There are also two full-time Spanish translators.
Having a Baby? Congratulations!
At Greer OB/GYN, we know that pregnancy and birth are key events in the life of any family. That’s why our providers and staff consider it a privilege to be part of your birthing experience. That’s also why we strive to provide you with high-quality care in a comfortable, nurturing environment.
Pregnant women have many choices and options. Starting the decision making process early will help to make the best possible outcome for you and your baby. Registering in advance for your delivery, preparing for your birth with childbirth classes and exploring planning for your care after you return home will make your pregnancy experience easier.

Nurse-Family Partnership helps transform the lives of vulnerable first-time moms and their babies. Through ongoing home visits from registered nurses, low-income, first-time moms receive the care and support they need to have a healthy pregnancy, provide responsible and competent care for their children, and become more economically self-sufficient. From pregnancy until the child turns two years old, Nurse-Family Partnership Nurse Home Visitors form a much-needed, trusting relationship with the first-time moms, instilling confidence and empowering them to achieve a better life for their children – and themselves.
An evidence-based community health program, Nurse-Family Partnership’s outcomes include long-term family improvements in health, education, and economic self-sufficiency. By helping to break the cycle of poverty, we play an important role in helping to improve the lives of society’s most vulnerable members, build stronger communities, and leave a positive impact on this and future generations.
