About MUSC Health

Message from Executive Director / CEO of MUSC Medical Center

Patrick Cawley

Welcome to MUSChealth.com.  We have created this interactive Web site to serve the health information needs of you and your family.  Here you will find the latest in disease and health information, interactive health tools, physician profiles, appointment scheduling, health podcasts and videos, and much more.  You can even have your health questions answered online by a specially trained nurse.

MUSC is proud to offer some of the best medical care in the country. In fact, MUSC has been awarded the National Research Corporation’s (NRC) Consumer Choice Award for 16 years running.  The award recognizes MUSC as the most preferred hospital in the area.

Our commitment to providing you with the highest quality health care in South Carolina will continue in the coming years with the renewal of our downtown Charleston location. The first phase of this renewal began with the opening of the state-of-the-art Ashley River Tower Hospital in 2008.  The expansion will continue over the next two decades, and will result in a world class facility for patient care, teaching and research. 

We hope the information and tools provided in this Web site continue to enhance your experience with MUSC.  If you do not find the information you are looking for, please call MUSC Health Connection at 843-792-1414.  Our customer service representatives are ready to assist you Monday – Friday, from 8 am to 5 pm.  And our Health Resource Nurses are available at the same number from 8 am to 5 pm.  If you prefer to contact us online, please e-mail our webmaster.

We thank you for your support and consider it a genuine pleasure to serve you.

Warmest regards,

Patrick J. Cawley, M.D., MHM, FACHE
