by Atlanta Business Journal

MUSC (Medical University of South Carolina) Health (Charleston, S.C.) is collaborating with the South Carolina Department of Corrections (SCDC; Columbia, S.C.) to open an inpatient unit for inmates at Chester Medical Center in Chester, S.C.

The project will include 36 beds for acute care, long-term care, medical and surgical, and critical care. All patient rooms are monitored and locked down 24 hours a day and SCDC will provide unit security.

The hospital is expected to start accepting patients to the wing by the end of the year.
