Diversity Mission: At Greenville Health System, we define diversity as “any collective mixture characterized by similarities and differences.” Diversity takes on a strategic significance as we recognize the increasing diversity of the workforce and the patients we serve.

Greenville Health System has various employee interest groups, including a young professional group, the Physicians Diversity Council, and the Nursing Diversity Council among other hospital-based diversity councils. The health care organization is also committed to achieving supplier diversity by seeking diverse suppliers though involvement with development organizations and various trade show events. The organization also provides training and support for minority- and women-owned businesses on how to do business with the Greenville Health System.
