Infectious Diseases

Seasonal Visitor Restrictions

Our primary goal at MUSC Children's Health is the safety of our patients, families, and care team members. Given the ongoing community spread of respiratory viral illness, we are instituting the following visitor restrictions at MUSC Shawn Jenkins Children’s Hospital & Pearl Tourville Women's Pavilion.

The Infectious Diseases program at MUSC Children’s Health performs consultations for diagnostic evaluations and management of children with known or suspected infectious diseases. Our physicians are board-certified in pediatrics and pediatric infectious diseases. We also offer a comprehensive pediatric HIV care program via a multidisciplinary team that includes a nurse case manager, a social work case manager, an educational psychologist, and a peer advocate.
