SRHS Associates Show Their Pride

Spartanburg Regional Healthcare System (SRHS) has garnered several awards recently, from being ranked by U.S. News & World Report as number one regional hospital in South Carolina, to recognition for cardiac care from Healthgrades.

But the most important praise SRHS can receive is from its own employees. Recently, employees shared why they love working for SRHS in an essay contest. Here are highlights from the three winners:

“It is rewarding to have the opportunity to make someone’s day a little better, even in some small way. It is both a pleasure and a privilege to work with a dynamic system of folks demonstrating that same level of integrity and stewardship, and also to know that I am an important piece of this valued network of employees. I believe one of the best most wonderful things about SRHS is that it does so much more than just work to take care of the Upstate’s physical health. To work for a company where everyone is encouraged to give back and help those less fortunate speaks volumes about what it stands for.”

Kristen Alexander, Transportation

“There is a sense of place and a sense of pride prevalent in these halls. It fosters nostalgia, loyalty and dedication. There are echoes of tradition, passed forth through decades of commitment to the people of this place. For those who choose to work here, we join this tradition, and we build these senses of place and pride. I love that I come to work to serve the people of this place.”

Page McDowell, Oncology


“I had treated a patient several months ago when he was nearly wheelchair-bound and could only stand in a crouched position, relying entirely on his upper body strength, and only for a few seconds. One day, he walked with a walker more than 160 feet, with a look of pride and determination on his face. He glanced around beaming, to see if his wife had been watching. Because I am empowered, I empower others.”

Liesl Parks, Rehabilitation Services
