Monday, the Greenville Hospital System University Medical Center will officially change its name to the Greenville Health System.
At 11 a.m. employees at each of GHS' five campuses will hold celebrations for the system's rebranding, including one at Greenville Memorial featuring 60-plus employees wielding large cards that will be flipped in unison to show the transition to the new logo.
Officials said the decision to change its name was made to better reflect the hospital system's current identity and to position itself for growth.
The hospital first opened its doors in Greenville back in 1912, with just 84 beds. Today it's the state's largest non-profit healthcare system, with five campuses and 167 affiliate physician sites, spanning from Greenville to Spartanburg.
Officials said it could take up to three years to get all of the signage swapped out.
