To raise funds and enhance community awareness...
The purpose of the Friends of MUSC Children’s Hospital is to raise funds for and enhance community awareness of the exceptional care delivered at the MUSC Children’s Hospital. The Friends group provides a social fabric for individuals to participate in activities that benefit the many children throughout the State that are cared for by the MUSC Children’s Hospital.
MUSC CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL
Medical University of South Carolina Children's Hospital
An integral part of the Medical University of South Carolina, the MUSC Children's Hospital is dedicated to enhancing the health of children throughout South Carolina, and to providing an environment that supports excellence in pediatric patient care, teaching and research.. Our employees believe that children have special needs for everything from their medicines and the size of their beds to special care that only specially trained pediatric professionals can provide.
A VERY 'FRIENDLY' Story
"Friends - who are passionate about helping...Friends!"
In the fall of 2009, the Friends of MUSC Children’s Hospital was formed by a group of 11 women who shared stories like these. All of these women have a different relationship or experience with the Children’s Hospital, but they share one thing in common…a passion for healthy families. These women visualized a “grassroots” organization that would be built from a network of people - “Friends” - who are passionate about helping the Children’s Hospital.
DARBY CHILDREN'S RESEARCH INSTITUTE
Caring for Chldren and Providing New Treatments
While MUSC Children’s Hospital has made great progress in caring for our children, the health and safety of too many are still at risk. That’s why our work continually must be fortified through new ideas and innovations in medicine and technology — and why we’ve taken our commitment to children to the next level, with a world-class research institute, the Charles P. Darby Children’s Research Institute.
The Darby Children’s Research Institute is one of only 15 centers in the country dedicated to finding new treatments and cures for childhood diseases. These diseases include stroke, congenital heart disease, epilepsy, diabetes, metabolic bone disease, spinal cord injury, multiple sclerosis and much more.
