GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Greenville Health System's board of trustees approved a $1.8 million budget for 2014 that will create nearly 500 new jobs - without raising patients' prices.

The system said most of the jobs will be positions for nurses, physicians and mid-level providers, and clinical support staff in both inpatient and outpatient units as well as in primary care, surgical and behavioral health practices.

Strong financial discipline has allowed us to add hundreds of new jobs, while at the same time holding the line on no additional price increase for patients," said GHS President and CEO Michael Riordan.

Riordan said the system will continue to operate conservatively and monitor spending to save money.

The new jobs will open throughout the hospital's 2014 fiscal year, which starts Oct. 1. The budget is a 2.9 percent increase from their 2013 projection. The budget is more than $40 million in savings implemented to keep the health system more efficient and reduce costs.

The company is the largest employer in Greenville County.
