MUSC Health Sea Islands Medical Pavilion


Decorative ImageOver the next five years, double digit population growth is anticipated in the Sea Islands communities. This growth, along with the islands' geographic isolation, demographics, and community health profiles, has created an urgent need for additional health care services in this part of the South Carolina Lowcountry.

  • The community is home to a large population of seniors, who generally have a great need for both outpatient and emergent health care services. By 2024 there will be ~31,000 additional 65+ residents in the service area.
  • Total trauma transports to MUSC have increased by 52% since 2016 for these residents. Injuries related to falls have doubled over the last two years.
  • The community also has a large seasonal population of tourists, many of whom have trouble navigating local health care services.

The community will benefit from

  • Access to life-saving medical care in a new free-standing Emergency Room, with trauma rooms, fast-track triage, CT scan and radiology services, full lab services, and helipad.
  • State-of-the-art imaging and other technologies.
  • Convenient access to primary care and other outpatient services, as well as telehealth pods, onsite lab and diagnostic treatment, and physical and occupational therapy treatment rooms.

Clinical Services that will be offered include

  • Orthopaedics
  • Cardiology with rotating subspecialties (including ECHO, EKG testing)
  • ENT
  • MDVIP primary care
  • General primary care
  • PT/OT
  • Imaging, including CT, X-ray and Ultrasound
