S.C. doctors get a sneak peek at ART

More than 600 health care professionals from around South Carolina converged on Charleston as they visited and participated in MUSC’s Practitioner Open House Jan. 6 in anticipation of the opening of MUSC’s Ashley River Tower (ART).
Guests enjoy the casual ambiance of ART’s patio/deck area on the second floor and adjacent to the atrium.

The event was an opportunity for MUSC clinicians to meet and interact with their local and statewide colleagues from Columbia, Beaufort, Florence and beyond. Groups toured the facility’s new Chest Pain Center, digestive disease specialty areas, OR and endoscopy suites, Cath/EP labs, and patient areas.
MUSC’s  Dr. Fred Crawford, chief of cardiothoracic surgery, tours physician-guests around ART’s fourth floor operating rooms.

ART public information coordinator Ginny Gamble leads visitors through ART’s fourth floor that features the ORs, ICUs and patient rooms.
