Women’s Services Cohort

Our Women’s Services cohort is offered at these Prisma Health facilities.

Greenville Memorial Medical Campus

Women’s Specialty: This unit cares for high-risk antepartum patients, high risk postpartum patients, GYN patients, and grief/demise patients. Women’s specialty also assumes care of patients in the early stages of  induction. The unit is comprised of 23 beds.

Family Birthplace: This unit takes care of a variety of patients encompassing low and high risk inductions, low and high risk patients in labor, high risk antepartum patients, and grief/demise cases. This unit provides the opportunity for water births and midwifery care. Patient care is provided through the immediate postpartum period. Greenville Memorial Hospital is also the Perinatal Regional Center that accepts and manages high risk transfers from other facilities within the community.  The unit is comprised of 15 labor rooms, an OB operating room suite with 3 ORs as well as multiple recovery rooms, and a 7-bed triage area.

Family Beginnings: This is a 35-bed unit that cares for postpartum low risk moms and newborns. We have nurses that are assigned to couplet care and/or newborn nursery care. The nursery nurse is responsible for newborn admissions and cares for boarder babies that may require an extended stay. We are part of the MAIN program that provides care for our opioid exposed newborns, so that their care can take place in Level 1 nursery and not in a NICU setting.
