Patient & Family Support

To learn about a new health condition or options for care—including those related to childbirth—patients and their family members often need support and education. So we have assembled a broad range staff and activities to provide the information you need.

Support and education

For general support and information, ask your physician, nursing staff or patient representative for information about these important services:

  • Guest Services/Patient Representative can help with any special needs or concerns, including directing you to various health services or resources. Any staff member will be happy to call them for you: 864-560-6600.
  • Chaplains are available 24 hours a day. Ask any staff member to page the on-call chaplain for you: 864-560-6157.
  • Find a physician specialist or sub-specialist online. Or contact our Nurse Referral Line: 864-591-7999
  • Classes and events —including support groups

For information about childbirth and parenting, contact us at 864-560-BABY (560-2229). Or search online for classes and events. Some of the special services we have created for you and your family include:

  • Tour of the Center for Women and our birthing unit
  • Birth consultant, a nurse who can guide you to services, classes and specialists during your entire pregnancy—a free service of the Center for Women
  • Nationally certified lactation consultant, a nurse with special training to help you with breastfeeding
  • Classes on birth basics, breastfeeding, and new-baby care
  • Sibling class
  • Support group for new moms
