Rolling Green Village Welcomes Hospitalist and Medical Director from Prisma Health
GREENVILLE, SC–Rolling Green Village senior living community in Greenville has announced a new hire in their partnership with Prisma Health. Dr. Alan Thompson has joined the team as an on-site hospitalist. In his new position, Dr. Thompson will be responsible for bringing a new level of hospital inpatient experience to the Mildred L. Smith Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation Center on the Rolling Green Village campus. He will help enhance the clinical skill sets of nurses at the community and improve recovery times.
Rolling Green Village has been serving seniors for more than three decades with nearly 600 total residents calling the community home. As a Life Care community, Rolling Green Village provides residents on-site health services, including assisted living, skilled nursing and rehabilitation if they need it.
Dr. Thompson brings more than 15 years of diverse experience to the Rolling Green Village community. “We’re excited to be one of only two communities in the area to have an on-site hospitalist at our community,” said Marketing Director Ruth Wood. “This will differentiate Rolling Green Village as the community for rehabilitation in Greenville, as we expect to see return hospital visits decline with Dr. Thompson visiting patients on a regular basis.”
Dr. Thompson is the second Prisma Health employee to join the Rolling Green Village team. In 2018, the community welcomed Dr. Melissa Bailey-Taylor as the community medical director. Since joining the team, she’s elevated rehabilitation services at Rolling Green Village by overseeing the entire rehabilitation staff at the senior living community.
Rolling Green Village, located at One Hoke Smith Boulevard in Greenville, is a Life Plan Community that for 30+ years has been offering area seniors a variety of vibrant lifestyle options, including independent living apartment homes and various services and amenities. In 2020, the community will continue its support for Greenville seniors by adding 23 cottages and 60 apartments. Features include a fitness center, restaurant-style dining venues and scenic walking trails. The community also provides assisted living apartments, as well as skilled nursing and memory care suites as part of its full spectrum of personal care options.
Prisma Health, a not-for-profit health company, is committed to excellence in patient care, clinical research and teaching the next generation of medical professionals. South Carolina’s largest private employer, Prisma Health was formed when Greenville Health System and Palmetto Health joined together in late 2017, officially becoming Prisma Health in January 2019.
