Pelham Medical Center’s investment as title sponsor of the 30th annual Greer Family Fest is better than free for this weekend’s thousands of visitors– it’s an opportunity to get valuable screenings, learn about the Gibbs Cancer Center Research Institute at Pelham, and an opportunity to meet doctors from various practices.
The Gibbs Health Institute (GHI) is a national initiative announced Tuesday that is projected to revolutionize the way clinical cancer trials are done and how personalized medicine is delivered in the community setting.
Pelham Medical Center (PMC) became the iconic visual reference of the Pelham community this morning when the Spartanburg Regional Healthcare System rebranded for the former Village of Pelham Hospital.
“As part of Spartanburg Regional Healthcare System, this campus is a part of a larger system,” said Anthony (Tony) Kouskolekas, President of Pelham Medical Center. “When we work as a team, we’re able to provide a full spectrum of services to our patients, not just in Greer, but also across the Upstate.”
Village Hospital will open a new catheterization lab in Greer on Monday. While procedures offered at the lab will initially be limited to diagnostic procedures, additional services will be added as the program grows.
“Before this cath lab opened, there was no other such facility in Greer, which meant patients would have to travel to either Spartanburg or Greenville for this type of service,” Anthony (Tony) Kouskolekas, President of Village Hospital, said. “This latest expansion of our services is further proof of our commitment to the Greer community that expert medical care need not be a long drive away to another city. It’s right in our own backyard at Village Hospital.”
