Prisma Health-Upstate President Spence M. Taylor out as his role is eliminated

Spence M. Taylor, MD, president of Greenville, S.C.-based Prisma Health-Upstate, resigned Sept. 19, noting that the health system is eliminating his role, according to a Greenville News report.

Dr. Taylor led Prisma Health-Upstate, formerly Greenville Health System, for the last three and a half years.

In 2017, Greenville Health System merged with Columbia, S.C.-based Palmetto Health to create Prisma Health. Mark S. O'Halla was appointed leader of the merged entity earlier this year, replacing Michael C. Riordan and Charles D. Beaman Jr., who had served as co-CEOs since the merger.

Prisma Health is now streamlining its other leadership roles, eliminating the president role at both Prisma Health-Upstate and Prisma Health-Midlands, formerly Palmetto Health.

"It was a good move. The right move," Dr. Taylor told the News. "And I support it."

Dr. Taylor is a trained vascular surgeon, and he worked at Greenville Health System for 27 years. He said he will review his options before making any decisions about his future.
