Our Affiliate System

We are building one organization with affiliates in two regions. Our parent company, now known as Prisma Health, supports both affiliates with overall direction and leadership as we continue to align. We will soon share one brand across the entire organization to better reflect this. The rebranded Palmetto Health-USC Medical Group will continue to operate as a joint venture between the Midlands affiliate and the USC School of Medicine.

We are becoming Prisma Health in early 2019

Department of Psychiatry & Behavioral Medicine

Welcome to the Department of Psychiatry & Behavioral Medicine of Greenville Health System. We provide a complete spectrum of care to diagnose and treat psychiatric disorders (often referred to as emotional and psychological disorders) in children, adolescents, adults and geriatrics.

We are dedicated to treating patients with mental health disorders in both the inpatient and outpatient setting. In addition to treating patients, we are a teaching facility focused on training future healthcare professionals.

Clinical Assessment and Referral Center (CARC)

Upon arrival, the Behavioral Health Services’ CARC team will assess and make treatment determinations for the most appropriate level and type of care needed to address an individual’s situation. This is the point of entry into all of our programs. Caring and professional staff will greet each patient and assist with the initial evaluation and admission process.

Patient Referral

To refer a patient to the Department of Psychiatry & Behavioral Medicine, call (864) 455-8988 or 1-888-852-8520.

The Access and Admission team is comprised of nurses, licensed social workers and licensed professional counselors who assess inquiries to determine the most appropriate level of care and other resources. The team is available from 8:30 a.m. until 7 p.m. Monday through Friday. After hours and on holidays, calls are answered by hospital personnel who will conduct a brief triage over the phone and provide recommendations.
