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 three Board Certified Pediatric Intensivists.
McLeod Pediatric Intensivists
The McLeod Pediatric Intensivists offer critical care services for life-threatening illnesses, diseases, and injuries in both the McLeod Children's Hospital and the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit.
Outpatient Sedation Services
They also provide outpatient sedation services for MRI's and painful procedures where sedation is required. They are available by phone for consultation concerning complex pediatric problems.
