Hospital Milestones/ Advancements
In February 2005 ECH completed the expansion of the new ER. Being a rural community we realized that minutes make the difference in a medical emergency. Our ER provides services 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. ECH is prepared to treat or stabilize most medical and trauma emergencies. Our ER is equipped with 5 treatment rooms. The recent expansion also included a new CT Room and a separate Triage Unit. Our waiting area was also expanded, making your visit to our ER more comfortable.

Unique to many hospital communities is the two room family suite at ECH. Commonly referred to as “the Strom Thurmond Suite.” This suite was originally furnished with the senator’s furniture and belongings when he retired home to Edgefield in 2003. It is a private spacious setting for family to spend time with loved ones that are terminally ill. The adjoining room is furnished with a bed, microwave and refrigerator to be used by family members.
