Pediatric Primary Care - Rutledge Tower
MUSC Pediatric Primary Care provides primary care medical services using a patient centered medical home model established by the American Academy of Pediatrics. A patient centered medical home (PCMH) is a place where your child’s medical treatment is coordinated through his/her primary care doctor. As a PCMH, we work on both the medical and non-medical needs of your child and family. We provide medical care for your child when and where they need it in a manner that you can understand. We follow and take care of your child, healthy and sick, from birth through high school.
Our clinic staff includes physicians, nurse practitioners, nurses, administrative personnel, interpreters, and social workers. To learn more about their roles, see our descriptions of our care team members.

- The medical home coordinates with early intervention programs, early child education programs and other public/private programs that address children's needs.
