We’ve learned a lot about caring for children over the last 28 years. Kids heal better when they have the most talented doctors and caregivers, working in the most advanced environment possible.

The MUSC Shawn Jenkins Children’s Hospital is being built from the ground up with exactly these things in mind.
Message from the President
Landmark moments in life are rare and it is important that we take the time to pause, express gratitude, and celebrate.

The event was a monumental occasion for our state’s women and children, and all those we serve.
I am what's possible
