Workplace Well-being

As a designated Center of Excellence by the South Carolina Hospital Association's Working Well Initiative, the MUSC Office of Health Promotion provides leadership in our community and across the state to create healthy workplace environments, positively impacting the health and wellness of our state's workforce. In addition to serving as a resource for healthy hospitals, we are impacting the health of the business community through the development of the South Carolina Healthy Business Challenge, a free program designed to helping organizations create a culture of wellness and make health a priority at work.

Located at 17 Ehrhardt Street, Suite 5, the OHP serves as an organization-wide resource for multi-disciplinary health promotion and wellness programs and initiatives open to MUSC care team members, students as well as the communities we serve.
