Building a Healthier Community
At Greenville Health System, we want you to be healthy and active, and we have the tools to help. Our goal is to help you live a healthier lifestyle, and to provide the right care at the right time in the right place. In addition to our seven medical campuses and over 150 practice site across the Upstate, we offer convenient care on your schedule at MD360 and online care with SmartExam. This enables you to receive the care you want, the way you want it.
We’re here for you when you’re sick, but let us help you stay healthy. GHS partners with many community groups to provide resources such as health screenings and educational lunch and learns. In addition, we encourage you to get active on the GHS Swamp Rabbit Trail, take a fitness class at the Life Center, or get in a workout at the GHS YMCA. Working a little more activity into your day may not be as difficult as you think. Here are some tips:
- Take the stairs
- Park one row further away each day
- When watching television, do some sit-ups during commercials
There are many ways to improve your health and decrease your chance for diseases such as diabetes, which can lead to a heart attack or stroke. We hope you’ll take us along on your journey to be “healthy-all-year” and build healthier communities along the way.
GHS Swamp Rabbit Trail
GHS Swamp Rabbit Trail is the result of a partnership between GHS and Greenville County Recreation District. Opened in 2009, the paved trail continues to expand and become more popular while providing economic benefits to nearby businesses. Learn more about the trail and plan a walk or bike ride today!
Get up. Get active. Get healthy.
Healthy All Year
At GHS, we want to do more than treat you when you’re sick. We want to help you be well! As part of this effort, each month we provide information about a specific health topic. We want you to be well and well-aware of the health risks associated with poor nutrition and a sedentary lifestyle.
GHS offers community events each month. Whether you’re looking for a breastfeeding class or obstetrics tour, a caregiver’s class or support group or registering for a screening, you’ll find it all here. Check out our upcoming events on our community calendar.
For tens of thousands of people in our community without health insurance, the cost of health care can prevent them from getting care when they need it. Lack of insurance and a low income does not have to keep people from getting the health care they need. We have a solution.
