Greenville Health Authority

With the passage of Act 432 by the S.C. State Legislature in 1947, what is now Prisma Health–Upstate evolved from a city-owned hospital (Greenville General Hospital) to one mandated to provide hospital services for “all the people of Greenville County.” With the formation of Prisma Health-Upstate (formerly Greenville Health System), the governmental entity that remained became “Greenville Health Authority” (see “Our Story” below for additional information).

Greenville Health Authority

With the passage of Act 432 by the S.C. State Legislature in 1947, what is now Prisma Health–Upstate evolved from a city-owned hospital (Greenville General Hospital) to one mandated to provide hospital services for “all the people of Greenville County.”

Our story: The "Greenville Health Authority"

Act 432 granted authority and funding for Greenville General Hospital to deliver health care-related services countywide, setting the stage for the facility to expand and become a health organization with multiple campuses. This act broadened the hospital’s scope to become “an institution with an independent board of trustees, free from the control of either city or county authorities, which would be charged with the duty of operating the hospital and its expanded facilities for the benefit of the taxpayers and residents of all Greenville County.”

In 2016, the organization (then called Greenville Health System) determined it could better provide for the needs of the community and fulfill its statutory obligations by contracting with a newly formed, private not‑for‑profit entity. This entity, Prisma Health­–Upstate, leased the assets and assumed substantially all obligations of Greenville Health System, including the right to conduct business under that system’s name. Therefore, the name of the governmental entity that formerly owned Greenville Health System was officially changed in 2018 to Greenville Health Authority (GHA).
