The much anticipated MUSC Shawn Jenkins Children’s Hospital and Pearl Tourville Women’s Pavilion opens this month transforming how care is delivered to children and women in the new 11-story state-of-the-art building that seamlessly integrates children’s care with obstetrical services.
One of life’s many joys is giving birth and bringing the baby home for the first time. Not surprisingly, the responsibilities of parenthood are great, and one area that is extremely important and recommended by MUSC Children’s Health and the American Academy of Pediatrics is to follow safe sleep practices.
It’s hard to believe that summer camp is just around the corner for many Lowcountry children. Each summer, thousands of children participate in a variety of camp adventures, and it’s not too early for parents to begin doing their homework to make certain their child has a safe and rewarding experience.
Most parents today know and understand the advantages of having their child treated in a children’s hospital.
Children’s hospitals, like MUSC Children’s Health, treat the sickest children in the country. Their physicians, surgeons, specialists, anesthesiologists and nurses are specially trained in caring for these patients. They understand that children require specialized equipment and child-size doses that may not be readily available in adult hospitals.
Are the long days of summer, picnics in the park, trips to beach and family vacations really coming to an end? Yes, it’s August and that signals a return to the classroom for children around the Lowcountry. Easing back into the school year is not always an easy task, but there are some things parents can do ahead of time to help their child have a healthy start to begin the new school year.
