Patients and Families First

Patients and Families First

MUSC Health is committed to providing compassionate patient and family-centered care. We are partners with our patients and families, honoring and respecting their roles as caregivers and care-receivers.

Commitment to Our Care Team Members

Commitment to Our Care Team Members

At MUSC Health, all employees, regardless of their roles, are care team members. Our care team members are called upon to embrace and demonstrate our values of compassion, teamwork, diversity, accountability and innovation. We believe that care team members who are dedicated to our values provide superb care and service.

We are committed to robust communication with all care team members throughout MUSC Health to continually communicate our goals, priorities, and to recognize outstanding care and service. We focus upon engaging all care team members in our organizational goals and to being the top employer in the communities served.

Care team members will be provided a competitive benefits plan, career and professional development opportunities, and access to resources of an academic medical center.

Supporting Our Providers

Supporting Our Providers

Alignment with MUSC Health opens the door to considerable resources and significant opportunity. Local providers and their patients will benefit from the opportunity to partner and collaborate with colleagues across the MUSC enterprise. The primary goal will be to increase and optimize care available locally. Additionally, the partnership will ensure excellent coordination of tertiary/quaternary care when necessary.

In the months ahead, our electronic health system will enable coordination of care locally and across the MUSC Health system. Patients will have electronic access to their medical records and the ability to schedule appointments.

We envision local providers having improved access to advanced technologies such as specialty and sub-specialty diagnostic support, and linkages with clinical centers of excellence. We look forward to fully harvesting the value of MUSC Health’s depth and capabilities in the rapidly emerging telehealth space.

It is expected that providers will have better opportunities for continuing medical education, access to clinical reference material, and improved recruiting capabilities.

Caring for Our Communities
