SPARTANBURG — Beaumont Mill is filled with people for the first time in nearly 20 years. After a year of renovations, Spartanburg Regional Healthcare System relocated 600 administrative employees to the former textile mill.
These departments moved from Spartanburg Medical Center and Pinewood Resource Center, located on East Wood Street, to allow more space for patients at the hospital.
Much of the original 18,000 square foot mill was preserved, including the original floors, exterior brick and expansive windows. The mill’s long history was incorporated into the renovations with photos and memorabilia displayed throughout the building.
Human resources, employment and recruitment, billing and medical records are among the many services relocated from Spartanburg Medical Center to Beaumont. No physician practices are located in Beaumont.
The move is part of a 10-year master facility plan, which includes moving the main entrance of Spartanburg Medical Center back to North Church Street and improving way finding in the hospital.
“We need the Spartanburg Medical Center campus to be more user-friendly for our patients and visitors,” said Phil Feisal, president of Spartanburg Medical Center. “We recognize that finding your way around the hospital presently can be confusing and somewhat intimidating. We anticipate that we will gain tremendous efficiencies and be able to further improve patient care with a more streamlined physical plant.”

Beaumont, Spartanburg Regional Healthcare System’s (SRHS) administrative offices, functioned as a textile mill from 1890 until 1997. The 125-year-old mill building sits on approximately 23 acres along North Pine Street in Spartanburg. Six hundred SRHS employees in nonclinical/administrative roles moved to the revamped building in 2016. This move freed up space to allow Spartanburg Regional Healthcare System to create a more cohesive, patient-focused building at the Spartanburg Medical Center. The 16,000-square-feet space utilizes natural light, and retains much of the flooring and architecture of the original building.
