John Mansure may be the President of GHS Greer Memorial Hospital, but he has seen first hand what the advantage of a company-owned pharmacy will mean to his employees and hospital patients.

Last week his son broke his arm in a lacrosse outing. The prescriptions had to be filled at the Patewood campus of the Greenville Health System since Greer Memorial does not have a pharmacy on site.

That changes July 8.

A Greenville Health System Pharmacy will open at 845 Buncombe Road. It will be a full-service pharmacy for Greer Memorial and Cottages at Brushy Creek staff and patients. Retail service will also be available.

Chuck Langston, of Langston-Black Real Estate, brokered the deal for the 6,000-square-foot property that is adjacent to Dollar General. The pharmacy will occupy all four of the remaining suites and have a drive-thru.

The hours will be 8 a.m. – 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. on Saturday and closed Sunday.

“It will be fully functional and it will work closely with the Cottages,” said Dudley Brown, spokesperson for the Greenville Health System. “The pharmacy will begin testing its operational systems on Monday (July 1).”

“This is huge for the employees,” said Cheryl Moore, manager of Customer and Volunteer Services at Greer Memorial. “We had to go to Memorial and Patewood to get our prescriptions filled. This provides so much more convenience for us and our patients.”

It’s the second announcement within a week of a health-related development on South Buncombe Road.

Village Green, an 88-unit assisted living complex, is planned at the formerly planned Buncombe Place, an office park that didn’t materialize. The $15-million project, scheduled to open September 2014, will employ 40 full-time staff. John Easterling of Pulliam Investment Company is planning to break ground Sept. 1.
