MUSC Health expands to the Midlands

Changing What's Possible Together

MUSC Health is pleased to announce plans for acquisition of three hospitals, a freestanding emergency department, and affiliated practice locations in Columbia, Camden, and Winnsboro, South Carolina. This relationship will provide a better opportunity in the Midlands market for MUSC to offer effective, integrated patient and family care close to home. We are excited for this opportunity to become a part of the Midlands communities, and look forward to extending our work as neighbors and partners to support these areas. We will change what’s possible together!

Q & A

MUSC's mission is to serve the citizens of our state and beyond. Over sixty percent of MUSC Health's patients are from outside the Charleston tri-county area. This acquisition will enhance patients' access to specialty and sub-specialty care while building a high-performing integrated health system.

MUSC Health respects individuals’ rights to exercise their religious faith and preferences. As a public entity, MUSC Health cannot be aligned with any religion or denomination. Advice and approval will be sought through appropriate Roman Catholic Diocese leaders and other involved parties to ensure appropriate treatment and respect of all religious symbols.

State appropriated funds will not be used for the purchase.

MUSC Health care team members include individuals employed in the hospitals and physician clinics. MUSC Hospital Authority (MUHA) care team members who work within a hospital or hospital-support settings will be eligible to participate in the state’s retirement and health plans. MUSC Health physicians and care team members employed within clinic settings, through a MUHA-related entity, will be eligible for attractive health and retirement plans similar to those provided within the regional health network clinics.
