Happy Thanksgiving from President Cole, 2022

Dear MUSC family,

As we approach Thanksgiving, it’s a natural time to reflect on how much we have to be thankful for this year. I am blessed personally with a wonderful family. And equally, I am blessed professionally with a remarkable MUSC family that continues, through working together, to do extraordinary things that have changed so many lives. It can’t possibly be stated enough how grateful I am for your dedication and excellence, especially during this time of enormous growth and transformation for our organization.

“Gratitude can transform common days into Thanksgivings, turn routine jobs into joy, and change ordinary opportunities into blessings.” —William Arthur Ward

I know that individuals, partners and communities around the state share my enormous sense of gratitude for all that you have done and will do to serve our patients, students and each other.

The contributions – big, small and everything in between – that you make for those we serve do not go unnoticed. Please take the time to care for yourselves and each other during this special time of year and accept my sincerest thanks and wishes for a peaceful and restful Thanksgiving holiday.

Yours in service,

David J. Cole, M.D., FACS
MUSC President
