Patients & Visitors
Welcome to The Children’s Hospital of South Carolina at MUSC! We understand that hospitalization may be stressful and frightening under any circumstances for both children and their families. We will do everything possible to make sure you and your child feel safe, comfortable and included. It is our intention to provide you with the information that you need to feel comfortable as partners and decision-makers in your child’s care.
As the premier children's hospital in South Carolina, MUSC Children's Hospital offers patients and their families:
- Exceptional medical care
- Cutting-edge procedures and research
- State-of-the-art technologies and facilities
- Unparalleled specialty and subspecialty care
- Outreach programs and resources for patients, families and the community at-large
We are committed to providing individualized quality care for every child, delivered in ways that are psychologically sound, developmentally appropriate, family-centered and proven by research.
Family-centered care means patients, their families, doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals form a partnership that benefits everyone. A “family member” is recognized as anyone whom patients regard as significant in their lives. Families are not considered visitors, but essential participants in care and decisions that affect the total healing of the child. The components of family-centered care are: respect and dignity, information sharing, participation and collaboration.
Patient Satisfaction Survey
Approximately 7-10 days after discharge, family may receive a survey from the MUSC regarding your child’s stay. Were we able to exceed your expectations? There are spaces available for you to make comments. The survey is very important to us, as we are striving to be VERY GOOD (5). It helps us know what we are doing well and what we still need to work on. We hope that you will take the time to complete the survey and send it back to us. Thanks for choosing MUSC for your child’s care.
