  • Colon Cancer Surgery 
  • Heart Attack

“For more than 100 years, Spartanburg Medical Center and its medical staff have served our community by providing world-class care through technological advancements, research and innovation,” said Phil Feisal, president of Spartanburg Medical Center. “Being nationally recognized for that continued commitment to excellence is rewarding to our physicians, nurses, clinicians and associates who work every day to improve the health of our community.”
