Today Dakota Seabrook seems like your average teen-age high school student - playing video games, shooting hoops and acquiring an impressive collection of athletic shoes.  But Dakota's path to this role is anything but average. For most of his life, Dakota has suffered from the debilitating pain crises associated with Sickle Cell Disease (SCD).  In 2012 though, he participated in a clinical trial at MUSC for treatment of SCD that has changed his life.  This treatment consists of bone marrow transplant from unrelated donors and it has the potential to actually cure SCD.  Watch Dakota's inspiring story in this video. Dakota Seabrook  A Second Chance

MUSC Children’s After Hours Care has opened a new location in Summerville, located at 4330 Ladson Road, near Midland Parkway. The clinic offers a 100% pediatric staff to treat urgent care needs when your doctor's office may be closed. Care for newborns through age 17 is offered without an appointment from 4pm-10pm, Monday-Friday and 12pm-7pm Saturday, Sunday and holidays. The expansive hours and short wait times will appeal to parents who need the benefits of a pediatric setting, without the hectic and frightening pace and atmosphere of a medical center emergency room. All equipment - including a state-of-the-art digital X-ray system - is sized for children.

Offering treatment for:

  • Episodic illnesses including sore throats, earaches, bronchitis, cough, colds, flu and upset stomach
  • Sprains, strains and fracture care (sports-related injuries)
  • Asthma therapies - breathing treatments
  • Point of care testing - urinalysis, RSV, influenza, rapid strep
  • Urinary catheterization
  • IV therapy for dehydration
  • Splinting
  • Simple laceration repair with glue and/or steri-strips
  • Foreign body removal
  • Transfer of any patient who needs more specialty-based care or has an acute illness that requires more serious intervention
