This was one great hospital experience. Lord knows I don’t have a lot of those, so when this happened, I knew I had to write a review immediately. The doctors and nurses are friendly. The cleaning staff are very efficient, will do as directed. The radiology department is fast and efficient with results- they double check everything because it’s easy to make mistakes. If they make mistakes, they own up to it. This is why I love it here. Very responsible medical staff.

My niece gave birth in the L&D unit of Greenville Memorial and she said it was a comfortable experience. But when I went in to visit her, the room smelled of urine- not even like a faint smell, almost like there was urine on the floor. When I complained to one of the staff, they shot me a dirty look and agreed when I asked them to shift her and my grand niece to another room.

After some time they did and claimed they’d “cleaned” it. Imagine my surprise when I checked the bathroom and saw a trail of urine in the bathroom!!! Almost like they’d done it out of spite. I was so close to throwing a major fit but my niece asked me not to because she was close friends with her OB. I bit my tongue but when I saw them holding my grand niece without supporting her head properly, I could hold it in no longer.

I screamed at the incompetent nurse, who was clearly new. She broke down crying and complained to her superior. I was asked to apologize to her- CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT? This was the weirdest experience I’ve ever had in a hospital and even though I apologized to the stupid nurse, I didn’t mean it one bit. Also, will never be going here ever.

This is the #1 option for me when it comes to the pediatrics department. Not many places that my child won’t be screaming when they take her blood samples. The nurses here are very good with children and the doctors are sweethearts. Very appropriate for children.

I was admitted in Prisma health in Columbia 3.5 weeks ago when I felt like I was down with the flu. Horrible headaches, was running a low fever, and felt like vomiting, constantly. So when I could finally take it no more, asked my mother to take me to Prisma Health where they put me on observation overnight and then decided that I needed to undergo treatment.

I signed in as an inpatient and even though I hate hospitals, decided I would leave only after the treatment was done. On my second day here I felt extremely woozy one day when I woke up to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night. The next thing I know, I was on the floor and could barely move. There was no one else in the room and then everything blacked out.

When I woke up I was told that I was in the ICU. I was in a subconscious state and I could hear a lot of people talking around me. Even so I couldn’t find the energy to open my eyes. In a few hours I woke up and found out that I had been shifted to the ICU at Greenville Memorial Hospital because the ICU at Prisma Health was too full.

Do not intend to persecute any hospital, but I felt an immediate change in surroundings at Greenville Memorial. Not sure if that’s how it is in a typical ICU but I felt a lot more tended to, and in general, a more clean environment does tend to cheer me up (even when I’m mostly unconscious in an ICU-lol).

Even though I was asleep through most of my time here I was told later on by my family that they had no issues with the hospital. When they first transferred me to GMH the only issue was that since I was in the ICU, they wouldn’t permit anyone to go inside and see me for the first 24 hours. Even so the doctors would come outside and give them an idea of what was going on.

So they were always kept in the loop for whatever they were recommending and what medication I was going to be put on. In fact they even told them when they were going to put me on IV. That’s how thorough they are. Anyway, I woke up with bits and pieces of memories from this experience and fully recovered only two weeks later.

I was shifted to a lower level room after 5 days in the ICU and was feeling a lot better. Overall, I had no issues with this hospital, whatsoever. The nurses, doctors, tech people, house keeping people… all of them were extremely cordial with me and very sympathetic of my situation. Very thankful to everyone who helped me recover speedily, this is a lovely hospital where you can expect top notch level of health care.

If you need a major surgery done, I recommend the acute care center at Greenville Memorial, they have a really good surgical ward with the best surgeons in America (don’t want to sell them short haha). Seriously though, my father has had an open heart surgery, my mother has had orthopedic surgery and I myself have had surgery here too- just last month. Very able and professional staff.

A big thanks to the great PACU staff- you guys were on fire. Shout out to my home girl, Stella for your stellar performance (I couldn’t help myself). But my kid had to have surgery last Friday and it was a really scary process to wrap my head around. I’ve never had surgery myself and my father actually died during a surgical procedure, so the word surgery does give me the creeps.

But the surgeon in charge of my son’s, Dr. Young was the most professional surgeon of all. He talked to me for an hour, addressing all my concerns, answering all my questions with acrobatic ease. As a medical professional myself, I can’t tell you how much I admire this surgeon, for his level of care and concern is so much more than the average doctor. Very impressed with the service at this hospital. Would highly recommend this hospital, especially for pediatric surgery.

When my PCP told me to contact the radiology service unit at Greenville memorial for diagnostic services, I wasn’t sure what they would be like, given I’d never been here before. But everyone here is very friendly and efficient. They don’t make you wait long for the results and engage in friendly conversation with everyone.

I can’t think of a more appropriate hospital in all of South Carolina to give birth. This is my 3rd delivery and I’ve never been more comfortable in any other hospital.
