The MUSC Shawn Jenkins Children’s Hospital and the Pearl Tourville Women’s Pavilion project continues as planned with opening scheduled in early 2020.
This state-of-the-art building will transform how care is delivered to children and women in the Lowcountry and seamlessly integrate children’s care with obstetrical services. The soon-to-open glass building totals 11 stories and 624,000 square feet, offering expansive views of the Ashley River.
The new hospital includes state-of-the art technology and surgical suites for our world-class pediatric sub-specialists and surgeons. allowing our team to provide the highest quality, patient-focused care.Designed with the input of families and community members who had a connection to MUSC Children’s Hospital, the new hospital will provide a seamless experience for both patients and their families. There’s a game room for teens, playrooms for children, indoor and outdoor playgrounds, as well as Lowcountry themed hallways on each floor.
In an effort to complement the new children’s hospital by simultaneously providing a regional outpatient pediatric subspecialty care presence, the Summey Medical Pavilion, a pediatric-dedicated, 100,000-square-foot facility, opened in spring 2019 in North Charleston.
Among its many amenities are a pediatric outpatient surgical facility and a pediatric multispecialty medical office building that will include an urgent care clinic, imaging facility and infusion rooms.North Charleston Mayor Keith Summey and North Charleston City Council voted in 2016 to donate the land for the facility to MUSC, aligning with MUSC Children’s Health’s focus to provide more clinical access to patients and their families who live in communities throughout the tri-county area.
