McLeod Health Foundation
McLeod Volunteers like Reverend Jerry Aiken help provide extra care for our babies treated in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, one of only 6 Level III NICUs in SC. The 40-bed unit provides care to around 500 infant patients per year. 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, who have been trained in the management of high-risk newborns and their families. Funding by the McLeod Foundation for this unit allows the staff to meet the many critical needs of our smallest and most vulnerable patients.
