The Medical University of South Carolina facility

Strategic partnership to disrupt and reshape healthcare delivery at

Value Partnerships | Medical University of South Carolina, USA

Since the formation of a long-term strategic partnership in 2018, Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) and Siemens Healthineers have been working together on a mutual goal of advancing the quality of health care in South Carolina. The 10-year partnership capitalizes on the coupling of MUSC’s clinical care, research and education expertise with Siemens Healthineers medtech innovations and workflow improvement capabilities.

Now, three years into the strategic partnership, the organizations continue to optimize performance and operations in focused target areas including pediatrics, cardiovascular care, radiology, and neurosciences. In addition to launching a state-of-the-art hybrid operating room and installing various innovative technologies, including the first U.S. installation of the MAGNETOM Lumina 3T MRI scanner, MUSC and Siemens Healthineers continue to work together to achieve clinical improvements enterprise-wide. In a joint effort to develop a world-class stroke program over the coming years, to date, MUSC has seen an over 7% reduction in stroke inpatient length of stay — with additional improvements in patient experience and outcomes on the horizon.
