About this Site
Medical University Hospital Authority
MUSChealth.com (http://www.muschealth.com) is the official Internet site for the Medical University Hospital Authority (MUHA) of the Medical University of South Carolina. The purpose of the homepage is to provide a single point of entry to information about the services, physicians, departments and resources found within the Medical Center and it’s Affiliates.
The MUHA homepage is structured using portals for each of the primary user audiences served. The use of distinct portals allows users to self-identify as they come to the homepage and in doing so, allow them to follow the pathway that makes the most sense given their need for information. The portals serve consumers, patients, healthcare professionals, job seekers and those interested in the educational and research programs at both the Medical University Hospital Authority, the Medical University of South Carolina and it’s affiliated practices. (The official Internet site for the Medical University of South Carolina and it’s Colleges may be found at: www.musc.edu).
