This facility opened in February 2008 and will continue MUSC’s long history of providing a service of excellence in patient care. Specializing in Heart & Vascular Disease, Digestive Disease, and Cancer Care, this facility has been designed to offer not only the latest technologies and world renowned physicians, but also provide a convenient hospital with a hotel-like atmosphere. With this new facility, MUSC specifically addresses the increased incidence of cardiovascular and digestive disease and cancer among the growing patient population in South Carolina and the region.
