Greenwood is located in the beautiful Lakelands Region of South Carolina and surrounded by lakes and outdoor recreational opportunities.

Conveniently located for day trips or a weekend get-away, Greenwood is 2 hours from the mountains, 4 hours from the beach, and within 60 and 90 minutes driving time to the metropolitan areas of Greenville and Columbia respectively. Carolina Health Centers, Inc. (CHC) embraces a patient centered medical home model focusing on community outreach and education, patient engagement, and chronic disease management.
