Pediatric Subspecialists Bring Rare
Care to Region’s Sickest Youth

Many communities lack any Pediatric Subspecialists and fewer physicians choose to undertake the additional training needed for this expertise. Yet, from the Midlands to the Coast, young patients can count on this high level of care from subspecialists trained in pediatric cardiology, pediatric critical care, pediatric endocrinology, pediatric gastroenterology and pediatric orthopedic surgery.

  • Pediatric Subspecialists Furnish Very Special Care to Our Young Patients

    A child’s body constitutes much more than merely a small adult. At McLeod Regional Medical Center, four pediatric subspecialists – in critical care, cardiology, endocrinology, gastroenterology, orthopedic surgery – personify the McLeod mission to offer the care that families in our communities need. The McLeod Pediatric Critical Care Group accepts referrals from family physicians and pediatricians. For more information, call (843) 777-7300.

  • Pediatric Intensive Care Unit Guides Special Care For Life-Threatening Conditions

    The region’s only Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU), located at the McLeod Regional Medical Center, reflects a design, staff, and medical equipment unique to a child’s unique needs. In the PICU, board-certified Pediatric Intensive Care specialists care for young patients with serious diseases, illnesses or injuries.

  • Meet the Doctor

    When Dr. Chad Thornhill joined the McLeod Health team a little more than a year ago, he established a new specialty of care for children and adolescents throughout our region – pediatric gastroenterology.


    Beyond his role as a compassionate physician, Dr. Thornhill is also a loving husband and father. Watch this “Meet the Doctor” video to learn more about the Thornhills and why they have chosen Florence as their home.

    If your child struggles with any digestive, liver or nutritional disorders, we encourage you to make an appointment with Dr. Thornhill by calling McLeod Pediatric Gastroenterology at (843) 777-7380.
