Since 1980, McLeod has been providing the highest level of lifesaving care available to critically ill newborn infants through our Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU).
Level III NICU's
The McLeod NICU is one of only seven Level III NICU's in the state.
The 40-bed unit provides care to around 500 infant patients per year.
Trained and Experienced Staff
Four Board-certified Neonatologists and two Neonatal Nurse Practitioners staff the unit along with the region's most comprehensive nursing, respiratory therapy and occupational therapy staff, trained and experienced in the management of high-risk newborns and their families.
McLeod provides transport services for high-risk or critical babies from community hospitals within the Pee Dee to the McLeod NICU. Nurses and respiratory therapists respond immediately to assure high quality care for the newborn during transport, often making the difference between life and death for some newborns.
Regional Perinatal Center
McLeod is the designated Regional Perinatal Center for northeastern South Carolina, one of only five in the state.
