GREENVILLE, S.C. (Sept. 11, 2017)—Greenville Health System (GHS) has seen an increase in visitors needing after hours or urgent care. Some of these visitors are people traveling away from areas being impacted by Hurricane Irma, and many people are seeking help managing chronic diseases, like diabetes, high blood pressure, asthma and arthritis.
GHS asks anyone seeking help for medical conditions that are not emergencies to call 1-844-447-3627. Those seeking care will be paired with the most appropriate providers. This will ensure that emergency rooms can respond to emergencies as efficiently as possible.
Other GHS resources available to help visitors to the Upstate include:
- GHS SmartExam, an online tool that connects users with a GHS care provider. Patients can receive a diagnosis, treatment plan and if necessary, a prescription, for a number of common conditions, including bladder or urinary tract infections, coughs, common colds, allergies, sore throats and sinus infections. Parents can also use the tool for minor care illnesses that children experience. A $20 consultation fee is required.
