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

Meet Stephan G. Pill, MD

I am pleased to be returning to the Greenville-Spartanburg area after being an orthopaedic surgeon in private practice in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. I completed a one-year fellowship in Sports Medicine and Shoulder Reconstruction at Greenville Health System in 2011.

My clinical interests are sports medicine and surgery about the shoulder, hip, and knee. I started my career as a physical therapist before attending medical school and Orthopedic Surgery residency at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family, running, cycling, hiking and traveling.

Meet Trey Gurich, MD

I am excited to return to Greenville and join the Orthopaedic Surgery faculty at Greenville Health System. I will be joining the divisions of Orthopaedic Oncology and Orthopaedic Trauma.  I completed my Orthopaedic Surgery residency here at GHS, and I had the opportunity to train with our excellent faculty during that time. I then completed a fellowship in Orthopaedic Oncology at the University of Washington, affording me the opportunity to train at the University of Washington hospitals, Seattle Cancer Care Alliance, and Seattle Children’s.

My clinical interests include management of bone and soft tissue sarcomas (adult and pediatric), benign bone and soft tissue tumors, metastatic disease and pathologic fractures, as well as fracture care.  Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family, running, golf, traveling, and mountain biking.
