Greer Memorial Inpatient Pediatrics

Did you know your child can access Children’s Hospital services while staying in Greer?

That’s right! Our Children’s Hospital unit at Greer Memorial Hospital offers pediatric inpatient and outpatient services for medical conditions requiring a short stay. With inpatient pediatric services available here, children of the community may stay close to home when routine illnesses require hospitalization.

Services Include

  • Care provided by staff who have received pediatric training
  • Hospitalists service (hospitalists are in-house doctors; at Greer Memorial they are board certified in pediatrics as well as internal medicine and are available around the clock)
  • Child-friendly practices (such as performing all procedures in an exam room so that the patient’s room remains a “safe” place where blood isn’t drawn or bandages changed)
  • Inpatient pediatric care for newborns in our Labor and Delivery Unit, and general pediatric care in our six-bed Inpatient Pediatric Unit

What is a Med-Peds Hospitalist?

Internal Medicine-Pediatrics trained physicians combine the skills, wisdom and dedication of pediatricians and internists in a single physician. This description may seem similar to Family Medicine but, while some overlap exists, the training is significantly different. A four-year residency contains two years of formal training in Internal Medicine and two years of formal training in Pediatrics.

A hospitalist is a doctor who primarily provides inpatient care. Our Greer Memorial hospitalists only perform hospital duties. They do coordinate care with your office-based physician through medical records and direct communication.

Greer Memorial Emergency Department

The Greer Memorial Hospital Emergency Department serves adults and children in Greer. While we are not an exclusively pediatric emergency room, our ED is staffed by emergency physicians who have training to evaluate both children and adults.

We serve as an extension of the Children’s Emergency Center at Children’s Hospital, and to that end our Med/Peds hospitalists are available to the Emergency Medicine physicians in consultation twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. We want your child to receive the best care possible. Many children can be treated and released to home. If not, then we offer inpatient care in your own backyard! If a child needs to be admitted downtown to access services unavailable at Greer, we will also facilitate any necessary transfer.

In addition to physicians, the Emergency Department is staffed by a contingent of nurses and techs, all of whom rotate downtown to the Children’s Emergency Center to maintain a high standard of pediatric knowledge and skill.
