The entrance to the lobby of Greer Memorial Hospital will be extended out to the curb to rid visitors and staff of winds that bring in cold air.

The walk-in entrance to Greer Memorial Hospital will be extended to the edge of the driveway under the canopy to rid visitors and staff of swooshing winds that filter into the hospital’s lobby.

The plan was in place before record single digit temperatures, at the beginning of the month, sent staff at the front desk scurrying for layers of clothing, winter coats and gloves.

“The entry into the hospital will be longer and the doors will open to the side instead of the front,” John Mansure, President of GMH of the Greenville Health System said.

Inez Hannon, Community Relations Coordinator at Greer Memorial, who is frequently at the welcome desk, said the modification will be a relief to visitors. “I am mainly concerned with our patients. It will improve patient satisfaction and our staff will get relief from the cold air.”

Mansure said the extention will in place by the end of the first quarter.

Flu shots: Greer Memorial staff gave more than 2,000 flu shots in the community. Greer city employees, churches and walk-ins were offered the vaccines for free.
