A Brief History of the McLeod Children's Hospital

Since 1992, a specially designated Children's Hospital Ambulance has transported children and newborns from community hospitals throughout the region to high-tech, lifesaving specialists at the Children's Hospital. In 1994, McLeod opened the region's only five-bed Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) - designed, staffed and equipped, especially for children. In 1997, the PICU was upgraded from a five-bed unit to a six-bed unit and is currently under the direction of two board-certified pediatric intensivists.

Today, nearly 100 beds at McLeod are dedicated to serving the needs of children, including those in the Children's Hospital, Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, PICU, and Day Hospital.

The McLeod Pediatric Critical Care group was established in 1992. McLeod currently has six pediatric subspecialists encompassing the subspecialties of pediatric cardiology, pediatric critical care, pediatric endocrinology, pediatric neurology, pediatric general surgery and pediatric orthopedic surgery. In addition, McLeod is joined by a satellite clinic from the Medical University of South Carolina in the field of pediatric pulmonology.

The Children's Hospital is an institutional member of the Association for the Care of Children's Health, the South Carolina Children's Hospital Collaborative, and Children's Miracle Network Hospitals.
