After an extensive review by the American College of Surgeons (ACS), the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) trauma program has been verified as a Level 1 Trauma Center. This verification is the highest level any trauma program in the country can achieve. MUSC is the first hospital in South Carolina to achieve this rating.
"In fact, our Level 1 Trauma Program is the only one in the state to have received national trauma verification at any level," said Bruce Crookes, MD, MUSC associate professor and trauma medical director. "Achieving this recognition required total commitment from the entire hospital, and it means our patients can expect the highest level of care available at any time, day or night."
