Wait 'til Palmetto Bank gets a load of GHS' new logo. That lawsuit will tack a few bucks onto patient bills, too.

Silly move. It's still a hospital "system" and hopefully will stay the same.

Do you have any idea how many organizations in SC have the same or a similar image as part of their logos?? Not a big deal AT ALL. Besides, I believe the palmetto image is homage to GHS's relationship with the University of South Carolina medical school.

I don't have a problem with this. With the Life Center, Swamp Rabbit Trail, and USC medical school GHS is much more than just a hospital now. Plus the current name was too long and a mouthful to say.

The Greenville Hospital System has become more than a collective of five hospitals, multiple Life Center locations and numerous practices in many specialties with a common goal to improving health overall through preventative measures and treatment for mostly anything. Becoming Greenville Health System is reflective of how everyone works together focusing on better health.
