Obstetric Services

Obstetrics/gynecology is the branch of medicine that manages the health care of women. Obstetrics focuses on care during pregnancy, childbirth, and the recuperative period following delivery, whereas gynecology addresses diseases and routine physical care of the reproductive system of women.

Each of our facilities (Greenville Memorial Hospital, Patewood Memorial Hospital, Greer Memorial Hospital, Laurens County Memorial Hospital and Oconee Memorial Hospital) offers Family-centered Maternity Care in an area dedicated to labor and delivery—The Family Birthplace. In addition, Family-centered Maternity Care is practiced at Greenville Midwifery Care & Birth Center.

*Baby-Friendly designated facility

It is our hope that every woman experience a healthy pregnancy and delivery free from complications. Unfortunately, we know this is not always the case. Our critical care obstetric services are among the most comprehensive in the state and offer an invaluable safety net for all of our hospitals and our birth center. A team of paramedics, a specially trained respiratory therapist, neonatologists, and a highly-trained nurse are on call to transport critically ill or premature infants from any of our birth facilities to the Bryan Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Greenville Memorial Hospital. You can rest assured that no matter where you deliver, you and your baby will receive the best care possible.

GHS’ Greer Memorial Hospital and Laurens County Memorial Hospital are currently taking steps to achieve Baby-Friendly designation, as well as Baptist Easley Hospital, a partnership between Greenville Health System and Palmetto Health.
