McLeod Health Cheraw HostsOpen House for New ICU

Small group tours of the new unit and refreshments were enjoyed by everyone in attendance. The program ended with a special prayer of dedication by Reverend Dr. Johnnie McLendon who is also a member of the hospital’s Community Advisory Board. The new ICU provides a significant increase in space from the former, decades old ICU, increasing the unit to six fully private rooms all while doubling the size of each room. The new ICU also greatly enhances the way McLeod Cheraw supports the needs of critically ill patients and their families during the most trying times of their lives.

Dr. Travis Novinger, Chief Medical Officer for McLeod Health Cheraw, underscored the investment by McLeod Health into the hospital and the caregivers which directly benefits those living in the surrounding communities. “This new ICU is not only an investment in our hospital, but in in our towns and the people living in them, including me and my family. We live here and so do our families. We are neighbors who are caring for our neighbors. When we put someone in an ICU bed, we usually know that person and if we do not know them, we know their family or someone who does know them. Bren Lowe, Administrator of McLeod Health Cheraw, began the event by sharing how crucial the addition of the new Intensive Care Unit is for healthcare in the surrounding region. He was followed by Phillip Caulder, a member of the hospital’s Community Advisory Board, who recounted the times he needed critical care and emphasized what a blessing the facility is to Chesterfield and Marlboro County residents.

“We truly thank McLeod for investing in us and giving back to our communities. As a doctor who has worked here for more than 20 years, it is refreshing to see the new Emergency Department and now this beautiful, new ICU. It is encouraging to see an organization that is dedicated to our community. We all are important to McLeod Health,” added Dr. Novinger. “This is not only going to change lives – it will save lives.” Local community members and media partners joined McLeod Health Cheraw healthcare workers for a sneak peek of the hospital’s newly constructed Intensive Care Unit (ICU) on June 11. The event began outside on the campus lawn and consisted of physician speakers and hospital advisory board members.
