MUSC Children's Health is an integrated health care delivery system that provides comprehensive care for children from before birth up to eighteen years of age. We believe children have special needs for everything from medicines and the size of their beds to special care that only specially trained pediatric professionals can provide. U.S. News & World Report honored four of our pediatric services in the 2020 – 2021 Best Children's Hospitals survey.
MUSC Shawn Jenkins Children's Hospital is an ACS-verified Level 1 pediatric trauma center. The trauma center's Injury Prevention Program operates within four core areas: community outreach, education & training, research, and policy advocacy. Program activities focus on the most common mechanisms of childhood injury as well as those most burdensome to the patients, families, and communities we serve.
