Caring, Cost-effective Women’s Health
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 each year. 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 doctors. The Center has facilities on-site for lab testing and limited ultrasound studies. Women who need diagnostic prenatal ultrasound services are referred to the Maternal-Fetal Medicine practice. A full-time clinical nutrition specialist provides diabetic education to patients with gestational diabetes. Telephone triage is available to patients 24 hours a day.
In addition to 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 specializes in working with pregnant teens. There also are two full-time Spanish translators.

Nurse-Family Partnership helps transform the lives of first-time moms and their babies living in underserved communities. The program involves ongoing home visits from registered nurses. This helps low-income first-time moms receive the care and support they need to have a healthy pregnancy, provide responsible care for their children, and become more self-sufficient. From pregnancy until the child turns 2, these nurses form a valuable, trusting relationship with moms, instilling confidence and empowering them to achieve a better life for themselves and their children.
The Greenville Health System OB Center office of Nurse-Family Partnership is located at 1200 W. Faris Road in Greenville. For more information, or to refer someone to the local program for Nurse-Family Partnership, contact Lisa Skinner at (864) 295-7601.
An evidence-based community health program, Nurse-Family Partnership’s outcomes include long-term family improvements in health, education, and economic self-sufficiency.
