GREENVILLE, SC (January 20, 2021) – Bon Secours St. Francis, part of Bon Secours Mercy Health, announced today that Dr. Surabhi Gaur has been named Chief Medical Officer of the health system’s Greenville market, effective January 11, 2021.
Dr. Gaur is new to the Greenville area and brings with her a wealth of experience in health care. Prior to joining Bon Secours, the Pittsburgh native worked as an emergency medicine physician for five years at Jefferson Hospital before serving as Director of the Emergency Department at Uniontown Hospital in southwestern Pennsylvania, and later as its Chief Medical Officer.
She earned a bachelor’s degree in Economics from Dartmouth College. She then earned her M.D. as well as her M.B.A. from Temple University in Philadelphia, before completing her residency in Emergency Medicine at Cooper Hospital in Camden, New Jersey.
“We’re very glad to have Dr. Gaur joining the Bon Secours family. She has a great deal of experience that I believe will benefit the day-to-day clinical operations at our two hospitals,” said Bon Secours St. Francis Chief Clinical Officer Dr. Marcus Blackstone.
In her new role, Dr. Gaur will work closely with Dr. Blackstone to oversee the acute care operations at St. Francis Downtown and St. Francis Eastside.
“After meeting a fleet of talented and dedicated individuals working in a climate defined by compassion, but also purpose, I knew that working for Bon Secours in Greenville was my personal and professional fate. I am excited for the challenge and feel blessed for the opportunity,” said Dr. Gaur.
Dr. Gaur relocated to the Upstate with her husband, Dylan, a fellow emergency medicine physician. The couple shares two daughters, 8-year-old Safina and 5-year-old Kiran.
