“Greenville Health System is the largest healthcare system in our area, so it had the appeal of having the most opportunities. I wanted to work somewhere with good compensation and that offered exposure to a variety of experiences, along with good advancement and development potential.
“The culture at GHS is friendly and flexible. There is a desire to see everyone succeed and for people to work where they will contribute the most. The culture also values open communication. All employees’ opinions are valued, everyone’s voice matters.
“It is the frontline employees who display the passion for excellence found at GHS. I see this in working with the nurses every day. They forgo lunch to provide care to their patients, stay late to continue the care, jump in and help colleagues without being asked, hold a scared patient’s hand, comfort grieving families and serve the patients with a cheerful attitude.
“For nurses, embracing a willingness to change is essential to improvement. There are various people and committees seeking to find ways to improve the delivery of health care at GHS. Striving to find new and improved methods and then adapting to these better methods is something we are faced with daily.
“When I round with patients and their families and they express their appreciation for the nursing care they have received, I realize how much of an impact that nurses have on a daily basis at crucial times in patients’ lives.
“GHS is committed to its employees. The organization seeks to develop and promote employees to positions where they reach their maximum potential. Your opinions matter, your growth is important, your skills are appreciated, and your well-being is valued.”
