COVID-19 Visitor Restrictions

Our primary goal at MUSC Health is the safety of our patients, families, and care team members. We are closely monitoring the Coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic and making changes hourly to respond to the challenges and uncertainty resulting from this situation.

My son recently had surgery with Dr. Hollinger. I just have to tell you that the entire experience was excellent. Our time in the ER was quick & efficient & the surgery part was so easy. Dr. Hollinger & her resident were wonderful & made our son feel comfortable. I was blown away that our whole process took only five hours. The new hospital is beautiful & everyone was kind!

As a Level 1 Trauma center, our pediatric emergency department specializes in providing emergency care for any serious injury or illness your child may experience. In this child-friendly and family-focused environment, our pediatric trained specialists provide the highest level of care available, whether your child requires life-saving resuscitative care, treatment for burns, a severe allergic reaction, or any other medical problems.

Services We Offer

In addition to our board-certified emergency medicine doctors and pediatric nurse practitioners, our Child Life specialists use special techniques and methods to guide your child through the emergency department visit. They include distraction techniques, developmentally appropriate educational tools, and play therapy. We also use sedation for selected procedures to ensure the best possible result with the least amount of trauma.

And because we are associated with the only children’s hospital in the region, we provide access to pediatric specialists who are experts in all major subspecialties your child might need in an emergency.
