Mortality Index Data

Why we measure this

MUSC strives to take the best care of our patients, using the best evidence-based practices and technology available. For those patients at the end of their life, we can provide compassionate palliative care. Our mortality ranking helps us know how well we are providing the best possible care for patients, at all stages of their disease or illness.

How we measure this

MUSC strives to be among the best in the country on mortality rankings. An index less than one indicates we had fewer deaths than expected based on the complexity of patients we serve.

What we do to improve

MUSC strives to take the very best care of every patient, at every stage of their disease or illness. MUSC has the top specialty doctors and nurses in most every specialty, and state-of-the-art technology to help diagnose and treat most every condition. For those at the end of life, we provide compassionate care for the patient and their family.
