GREENVILLE, SC— People driving past 2400 Boiling Springs Road in Spartanburg County have noticed construction underway for Greenville Health System Medical Center-Boiling Springs, a multi-specialty practice that will open in the spring of 2017. But, many might not realize that a physician is already onsite seeing patients.
Patients seeking care from an internist or a family medicine physician can visit a modular office to receive care until the new building opens.
“It’s exciting to be part of a practice that can conveniently care for families in one of the fastest growing communities in Spartanburg County,” said Dr. Katie Spinks, a GHS internal medicine and pediatrics physician.
Patients looking for a primary care doctor can schedule an appointment with Dr. Spinks and a soon-to-arrive partner by calling (864) 599-0731 or visiting ghs.org/boiling-springs-appointments.
An internist, pediatrician or family medicine physician’s office serves as a medical home for patients. The physicians get to know patients, provide personalized care and follow their health status over time and spot potential problems before they become life-threatening.
GHS has 60 primary care practices across the Upstate and approximately 400 specialists.
Once construction is complete, the 20,000-square-foot GHS Medical Center-Boiling Springs will include internists, family medicine physicians, physical therapy, pharmacy, psychiatry, urgent care, labs and X-ray services. Urgent care, lab, physical therapy and X-ray services will be offered through GHS MD360, an urgent care with four locations across the Upstate.
Spartanburg-based McMillan Pazdan Smith is the architect for the project and Clayton Construction is the contractor.
