Abby joins MUSC in celebrating the Groundbreaking of the MUSC Shawn Jenkins Children's Hospital

Our friend Abigail Lee was among the more than 500 patients, state and local leaders, volunteers and other supporters who turned out to help celebrate the occasion.

Not even a brief rainstorm or the searing heat that followed could dampen the enthusiasm of children and others gathered August 12 for the groundbreaking of the MUSC Shawn Jenkins Children’s Hospital and Pearl Tourville Women’s Pavilion.

The 10-story, $385 million hospital, slated to open in 2019, will be an iconic landmark in Charleston, say the architects. Parents are excited about new features that will make care even more family-centered.

The occasion was hailed by MUSC leaders, parents, state and local leaders and hospital namesake Shawn Jenkins as a defining moment for children’s health in South Carolina.
