Feisal: Northside is "part of our neighborhood"


In part one of our conversation with Spartanburg Medical Center President Phil Feisal, we talked about the hospital recently being named the number one hospital in South Carolina by U.S. News & World Reportearning high performance rankings in nine specialty areas. Aside from the much-deserved publicity the ranking brings to Spartanburg Regional, the report underscores how crucial Spartanburg Regional's position is in our community, serving not only as the city's largest employer but as an incredibly important resource for residents within our municipal borders and well beyond.

Part of the important leadership role Spartanburg Regional plays involves their participation in the Northside Initiative. Today on part two of our podcast, we ask Feisal about the importance of redeveloping the neighborhood into a place some of the hospital's 5,700 employees might one day call home.
