At East Cooper Medical Center, we offer comprehensive rehabilitation services, including physical, occupational, and speech therapy. Our services are designed to assist patients in gaining the independence necessary to return to their home environment.
The rehabilitation department offers flexible, custom-designed treatment programs for persons who have suffered a loss in function due to a specific injury or illness. It is our goal to provide quality treatment to facilitate functional independence for the persons we serve.
Our inpatient rehabilitation department serves patients on the medical-surgical floor, ICU unit and Day Surgery departments. The rehab program serves for patients who have experienced a loss in function due to an injury or illness including:
Fractures and/or orthopedic dysfunction
S/P Spine surgery
Venous Stasis Ulcers
Once a patient at ECMC is referred to a specific therapy (physical, occupational, and/or speech), the patient is evaluated by a licensed therapist. The evaluation allows the therapist to establish a plan of treatment designed to help the patient move toward independence. The rehab professional works with the physicians, nursing staff, social workers and discharge planners to determine if the patient is ready for the transition from hospital to home.
An important part of this transition is family education and training. Each treatment plan is designed to provide education to the patient's family members and care givers. The education and training provide ways to assisting the patient with mobility, precautions following surgery, use of adaptive equipment and therapeutic exercises.

Our goal is to provide quality treatment designed to restore function, prevent future injury, reduce pain and improve daily living.
