Build Healthy Communities

Build Healthy Communities

Foster collaboration across our enterprise that is health-focused, not just disease-focused. In so doing, we will impact the health of the MUSC family and the communities we serve with a priority on healthy lifestyles, preventive care, and MUSC evidence-based care delivery.* Our integration of these priorities will strengthen our health education, research, and care delivery through targeted engagement and collaborative relationships.

*Currently called MUSC Health Ideal Care

Build Healthy Communities Wins:

The numbers are in! We had an amazing outcome from an innovative summer program that was truly aligned with our strategic goal of Build Healthy Communities! This summer, the Kids Eat Free program at MUSC served 5,143 meals to children for free! We are encouraging health care institutions everywhere to follow our lead. Kudos to MUSC's Debbie Petitpain, Sodexo wellness nutrition coordinator, and our partner, Sodexo.
