EMS Plan In The Works In Greenville County

Bon Secours St. Francis and Greenville Health System have been asked to work together to plan the future of Greenville County Emergency Medical services.

In a resolution passed Tuesday night, Greenville County Council voted the two health systems develop a plan for the county by the end of September.

Originally, council discussed the possibility of giving complete control of EMS to GHS, but Bon Secours argued that move would eliminate patient choice.

Council’s goal in making changes to EMS is to save taxpayer dollars.

A 7 On Your Side investigation last summer found county emergency services has been operating in the red, losing an average of $5 million in taxpayer money each year since 2008.
