About St. Francis Baby

History

St. Francis has helped Upstate families grow since its beginning in 1932. Labor and Delivery was housed at ST. FRANCIS downtown until 1991, when ST. FRANCIS eastside (formerly St. Francis Women's & Family Hospital) opened on Greenville's eastside to much fanfare. Just like today, the hospital was considered one of the premier healthcare facilities for women in the Upstate. St. Francis has continued to develop innovative programs and services in order to provide the very best birth experience for our patients.
