But Spartanburg residents don’t have to travel much farther than their own backyard for the best care. And this care has been recognized—Spartanburg Medical Center was recently ranked No. 2 hospital in the state of South Carolina by U.S. News & World Report.

“The patient comes first at Spartanburg Medical Center,” said SMC president Phil Feisal. “Not only do we care for patients while they are here at the hospital, but we also provide outreach in our community to keep folks healthy so they can live their lives to the fullest.”

How Hospitals are Ranked
