Master Facilities Plan
The Medical University of South Carolina Master Facilities Plan 2015 (MFP) is the culmination of many ideas generated through a rigorous planning process and is intended to be a framework for physical planning of the campus on both the near- and long-term horizon. The MFP has been designed in concert with the five goals of our institution’s strategic plan, Imagine MUSC 2020.
The purpose of our MFP is to:
- Align and reflect the priorities of the current strategic plan
- Articulate the type of facilities required to meet future education, research, clinical, and administrative needs
- Develop a rational roadmap for long-term stewardship of MUSC’s real estate
- Develop consensus throughout MUSC’s community regarding the future development of the campus
- Raise aspirations and funds to support MUSC’s mission
The Charleston Peninsula Medical District Project
The Master Facilities Plan is part of the larger Charleston Peninsula Medical District Project. The medical facilities within the district include, Medical University of South Carolina, Roper Hospital and the Ralph H. Johnson VA Medical Center.
The area’s medical institutions partnered to create the medical district in 2015. The district is a well-mapped, pedestrian-friendly area that emphasizes green space, mobility and safety to the more than 30,000 people who work in or visit there daily.
The Medical District lies within Cannon Street on the north, just beyond Calhoun Street on the South, Lockwood Drive on the west and Rutledge Avenue on the east.
The map below displays emergency rooms, hospitals, medical offices/clinics, educational facilities, public venues, parking facilities, transportation and related services. The majority of this district boundary is within the smoke-free City of Charleston medical district.
