On March 28, 2013, New Horizon Family Health Services, Inc. broke ground on a new $16 million, 64,000-square-foot downtown facility that will be located directly across from the Greenville Health System Emergency Department. The new facility is a reflection of the great community partnerships between New Horizon Family Health Services, Jobs Economic Development Authority (JEDA), Greenville Health System, and Wells Fargo Bank. It will offer access to quality, affordable healthcare to more people in need.
New Horizon currently provides 80,000 medical, dental and behavioral health visits to over 20,000 patients annually from its Mallard Street main site, other facilities in Greenville, Greer, Travelers Rest, and two mobile units. The expansion project will help retain 170 existing jobs, create 160 new construction jobs, and create 48 additional positions within two years of completion.
"The time has come to expand our ability to accommodate the community's increasing need for medical services and for more people to have a medical home," said New Horizon CEO Regina Mitchell.
Prior to this project, NHFHS has been challenged by inadequate facility resources during a period of increased demand and tremendous growth. The main site, which provides over 31,000 patient visits per year, is located in downtown Greenville in a 15,840 sq. ft. facility. There is no capacity, at the current location, to serve the average of 1,500 monthly referrals for individuals in need of medical care. The new building will allow for expanded pharmacy services, new radiology services, and a new onsite Urgent Care Center for better patient care and improved coordination with other providers. Once fully operational, the project will expand access to comprehensive primary care services for 10,000 new patients with 30,000
