Now under construction, MUSC Shawn Jenkins Children’s Hospital is a $385 million project which will be open to patients in 2019. The facility will be one of just a few of its kind in the country. How will it serve the entire state, while connecting with other health systems for a comprehensive approach to children’s health care in SC?
Originally from Tennessee, Dr. Scheurer earned his medical degree at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville. He traveled to Duke University Medical Center to complete his residency in internal medicine, subsequently arriving in Charleston in 2002, where he completed a fellowship in pediatric cardiology. He then completed a senior fellowship as a pediatric cardiac intensivist at the children’s hospital in Boston before coming back to Charleston. In 2014, Dr. Scheurer was appointed to the role of chief medical officer of the children’s hospital, and in 2016 as the chief of the integrated clinical center of excellence for both children’s and women’s health. In that role, he is overseeing the construction of the new MUSC Shawn Jenkins Children’s Hospital.
