Greer is getting one of four upstate senior-focused primary care centers.

Partners in Primary Care (Partners) will open the facilities Greenville and Anderson counties.

Greer’s care center will open next month at 805 West Wade Hampton Blvd. in the Greer Shopping Center.

The four Partners’ practices will be led by newly named Vice President of Medical Operations Dr, William Logan, Jr. Logan is a long-time physician in Greenville who is board certified in Internal Medicine, Geriatrics and Palliative Care. He has been serving the seniors of upstate since 2002.  

“Seniors are not like other adult patients,” said Logan. “They have different priorities and goals and a different group of medical and physical challenges. Instead of becoming more similar, people differentiate with age and become more unique.”

Partners’ facilities will allow patients to receive many of their primary care needs, such as X-rays, lab tests and checkups in one location. Each center will be staffed by board certified doctors and care teams who have been specially trained to treat the senior population.

Each Center will feature a wellness and activity center offering activities such as wellness classes and health education. South Carolina has one of the fastest aging populations in the nation, according to Logan.

“I’ve had the privilege of working with excellent primary care physicians in the Upstate since 2002,” Logan said. “But the Upstate is in need of an innovative, compassionate, and senior-focused primary care model. Partners in Primary Care is that model. We will focus on the underserved and growing Medicare population,” said Logan. “Extraordinary care for seniors is a passion of mine, and I am excited to be involved in offering personalized care to seniors in my state.”
