MUSC Children’s Hospital is the only children’s hospital in the area and the largest referral center in the region. We are made up of 31 pediatric subspecialties with faculty that staff a top 20 nationally-ranked pediatric heart program, and top 10 nationally ranked neonatal, and pediatric emergency services.

Our large referral base benefits from state-of-the-art care provided in our 185 bed facility. In-turn, our residents benefit from the cultural, economic, and medical diversity of this unique patient group. With 100,000 annual clinic visits and over 5,000 in-patient admissions, we see the spectrum from the well-child to those rare diseases that present a once in a lifetime learning opportunity.

What was founded in 1824 and built as a stand-alone facility in 1987 has become what is now the flagship children’s hospital for South Carolina.
