OUR MISSION

Greenville County Medical Society serves, advocates and collaborates for the health and wellness of the community and represents our physicians and practice of medicine within the Upstate.

 

OUR HISTORY


The Greenville County Medical Society was chartered in 1891 and has been an active part of Greenville County’s healthcare community for more than 130 consecutive years.  At the time of its charter, there were approximately 51 physicians registered with the County Clerk’s Office. Many of the early hospitals were opened, owned and operated by physicians. The number of physicians in Greenville was considerably changed after World War I and it might be said that the modern era of Greenville’s medical community started about 1920 when the men of World War I came to settle in our city.

Through the years, the Society has served as a catalyst to many healthcare initiatives that improved healthcare in Greenville County because they addressed specific needs in the community. Some GCMS contributions have included home care for returning veterans of World War II; a hospital built for the care of eye, ear, nose and throat conditions; the creation of special programs and care for mentally challenged children; the revered contributions of William Thomas Brockman, MD to Greenville and the practice of medicine; developing blood banking; encouraging health education in the classroom through being instrumental in the initial funding for the Body In Motion Room of Roper Mountain Science Center.
