Where Patients Come First

The MUSC Ashley River Tower, which first opened in 2008, reflects MUSC's commitment to its patients and their families. Amenities include private rooms as well as concierge service, valet parking, dedicated family lounges, wireless capabilities, retail shops and convenient dining. This new hospital combines the convenience of a four-story diagnostic and treatment center with a seven-story patient hospitality tower. Within this facility, MUSC specifically addresses the increased incidence of digestive disease, cardiovascular disease and cancer among the growing patient population in South Carolina and the region.

Changing What's Possible

Ashley River Tower offers convenient patient care. This state-of-the-art building features 156 beds, including an intensive care unit, operating rooms, laboratories, interventional radiology and endoscopy suites, and a specialized chest pain center. The hospital is designed to accommodate the most modern medical equipment available, as well as to offer patients and their families the highest quality of care in a setting that rivals the comfort and style of a fine hotel.
