About Coronavirus – COVID-19

We’re here for you, your family and our community.

East Cooper Medical Center works closely with the Department of Public Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to respond to any potential novel coronavirus (COVID-19) cases in our area. As the COVID-19 situation evolves, we take every precaution to keep you, your family, our staff and our community safe.

Our COVID SAFE Standards

COVID SAFE standards are built upon deep clinical expertise from previous crises and on-going management of COVID-19, as well as continuous incorporation of CDC, CMS and State recommendations. They are a rigorous combination of infection prevention processes, training, testing, personal protective equipment and technology. Our COVID SAFE standards includes five components:

  • Rigorous Physician and Staff Protocols – daily screening, universal masking and access to PPE
  • Heightened Sanitization – enhanced cleaning of surfaces and plenty of hand sanitization stations
  • Access to COVID-19 Testing - In-house testing available for patients, physicians and staff who require it. Community testing is NOT available.
  • Testing for Scheduled Procedures -  East Cooper Medical Center has implemented mandatory COVID testing for all scheduled procedures. Click here to learn more.
  • Precautions for Patients and Visitors – provision of face masks, hand sanitizer and physical distancing
  • Enhanced Virtual Access – virtual care, remote monitoring and connectivity with loved ones

Protocols continue to adapt in real-time to follow federal and local health agency guidelines.

As A Community Built on Care, we are here for you when you need us. For more information about novel coronavirus, go to the CDC website.
