Your guide to visiting the hospital

There is no doubt that a trip to the hospital can seem overwhelming, even if you aren’t the patient. At East Cooper Medical Center, we believe that a patient’s friends and family play an important role in their care and recovery. The more informed you are about our hospital, the more you can focus on what’s most important:  visiting with your loved one.

Do you have medical questions?

If you have questions about what your friend or family member might be experiencing but don’t know quite where to turn, you can reference our Health Library. There you’ll find everything from common conditions and the procedures used to treat them, to advice on rehab and returning to normal activities. Take a look and see if it has the answers to your questions. Explore the Health Library.
