Imagine What's Possible
The Campaign for MUSC Shawn Jenkins Children’s Hospital achieved “lift-off” with new hospital’s groundbreaking ceremony, held in downtown Charleston on August 12. Our friend Abigail Lee, pictured here, was among the more than 500 patients, state and local leaders, volunteers and other supporters who turned out to help celebrate the occasion.
This is a place where miracles will continue to happen
For as long as Benjamin can remember, he wanted to care for others. As a child, he spent countless hours in nature taking care of wounded birds and squirrels, healing them, treating them and releasing them back into the wild. Whether it was his love for animals or just a basic concern for others’ wellbeing, young Benjamin believed his calling was to be a veterinarian. That was, however, until he found himself in the middle of his own medical emergency.
We’ve learned a lot about caring for children over the last 28 years. Kids heal better when they have the most talented doctors and caregivers, working in the most advanced environment possible. But we’ve also learned that children heal better when they feel safe, happy and secure, surrounded by the people who love them.
Our new children’s hospital is being built from the ground up with exactly these things in mind.
The MUSC Family celebrates the naming of the new children's hospital in honor of Mr. Shawn Jenkins, founder and CEO of Benefitfocus, a Charleston-based human-resources software firm.
