It's Friday afternoon. You've felt tired all day, but now your throat has started hurting. And come to think of it, that nagging headache hasn't gone away, even after you took some medicine. You look at the clock - 4:30 pm. What to do? Your next decision could affect your health, your wallet, and your sanity! Read on to find out the convenient options St. Francis has for urgent care:

From Sniffles to Stiches and Fevers to Fractures, St. Francis Urgent Care is Here!


For non-emergency health concerns, we've got you covered! Weekdays during office hours the Bon Secours Medical Group has primary care and internal medicine physicians ready to assist you and your family. If you're feeling sick after normal office hours on a weekday or on the weekend, both After Hours Care and the new Bon Secours Express Care are available.


Visiting After Hours Care or Bon Secours Express Care has three main benefits:



Our Urgent Care facilities are staffed with board certified Primary Care and Internal Medicine physicians of the same high quality as you would find in one of our practices. If any additional tests or procedures are needed, they have fast access to the quality care found only at St. Francis.



Visiting the Emergency Room is certainly not the most cost effective solution for a non-emergency health concern. When you visit After Hours Care, you pay the same copay that you would if you were visiting a physician's office. The copay at Bon Secours Express Care is the same as an urgent care facility, but still more cost-effective than a trip to the emergency room.



Sometimes your busy schedule just doesn't allow time to get to the doctor. With facilities open until 10 p.m. on weekdays and all day on weekends, you can see the doctor at a time that's right for you. What's more, we have three locations - downtown Greenville, in Greenville near the Mauldin area, and in Travelers Rest. Another added convenience - when you're treated at one of our After Hours or Urgent Care facilities, your usual Bon Secours Medical Group doctor will be kept in the loop about your care.


So next time you're feeling sick at an inopportune time, remember that St. Francis is here!

Bon Secours Express Care provides treatment to injuries or conditions that are non-life-threatening. If you have an emergency, call 911 or proceed directly to the emergency room.


By now, most of us have heard of the brave decision made by actress and celebrity Angeline Jolie to undergo a double mastectomy after learning that she had a very high chance of developing breast cancer due to genetics. While it is certainly not the best decision for everyone, her story shined a light on genetic evaluation programs. St. Francis offers a program right here in Greenville, called the Cancer Risk Assessment Program (CRiSP)


The CRiSP program can help identify inherited and early cancer risks, such as breast or ovarian cancer, by looking at your family background and medical history. With families with high risk of developing cancer, their genetic links are researched so that they can gain a better understanding of their risks and treatment choices. The program also offers opportunities for early detection, chemoprevention, and monitoring.


The comprehensive program includes genetic evaluation, testing (including BRCA testing), counseling, and referrals to health care services.
