The new MUSC Hope Unit is a 12-million-dollar oncology unit on the top floor of MUSC’s Ashley River Tower. The unit grew from 12 beds for hematology and oncology patients to now providing 42 dedicated oncology beds which includes an area for blood and marrow transplant patients. The number one goal is to make patients as comfortable as possible and technology and amenities are tailored to meet the needs of the patients and their families. This new unit features spacious, private suites with hallway windows, flat-screen TVs, and waterfall-style shower heads as well as state-of-the-art nurse support stations for handwashing and charting. Views overlook the beautiful Ashley River allowing an abundance of natural light into the space. Family members have their own large lounge area and a family area with a shower and washing machine.
