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 and pediatric orthopedic surgery.
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, 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.
Parents no longer need to leave the region for specialty care in pediatric pulmonology (lungs/respiratory tract), nephrology (kidney problems) or hematology (diseases related to blood). Each month, these physicians see patients on the Florence campus of McLeod (Medical Park East, Suite 400). Patients require a referral from the child’s physician/pediatrician. For more information, call (843) 777-7300.
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.
