CHARLESTON, SC – The Medical University of South Carolina has once again been recognized by the Charleston City Paper in their annual “Best Of” Charleston list. The list is created by popular community vote and reflects how local residents view a variety of categories of people, places, events, and things in the Charleston area. Specifically, MUSC and MUSC Health were recognized as:

  • Best Hospital
  • Best Health Club
  • Best Place to Work
  • Best Weight Loss Center

Even though MUSC is South Carolina’s No. 1 hospital as designated by U.S. News & World Report, it is just as important to be considered the best right here at home. MUSC employees, faculty, staff and students make these awards possible by providing advanced, integrated health care while pioneering new ways to treat and heal the community locally, regionally and beyond.
