The new facility will be located at 333 South Pine Street in Spartanburg, which is the same location that houses the Steadman Hawkins Clinic of the Carolinas, Fertility Center of the Carolinas as well as Roger C. Peace Hospital outpatient services, driver rehabilitation evaluation and neuropsychological assessment services.
“We are just bringing the Eye Institute into the fold,” said Dudley Brown, public relations coordinator for GHS.
According to GHS, the Eye Institute in Spartanburg will provide eye exams, advanced condition care and a retail optical shop that includes prescription eye glasses, sunglasses and contact lenses.
“We’re excited to extend our services to Spartanburg and look forward to meeting the various needs of our patients,” said Dr. Alan Leahey, GHS’ chief of ophthalmology, in a press release. “The GHS Eye Institute provides the latest eye surgeries and we pride ourselves on helping patients review their options.”
Brown said the four ophthalmologists based at the GHS Eye Institute on Simpson Street in Greenville will staff the new facility in Spartanburg until June.
“For the first couple of weeks, the physicians we have in the Greenville office will rotate,” Brown said. “In June, we have a physician that will be here and will take over that practice.”
The Spartanburg practice will be open from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
