Programs & Education
The great care that is provided at ECRMC also extends into the classroom, where patients, healthcare professionals and the community are invited to learn more.
The Department of Education has developed a comprehensive educational program made up of many health topics taught through a variety of methods. Classes are led by dedicated educators (patient and community) who understand the importance of health awareness.
Health and wellness education occurs along a continuum that begins before the acute phase of hospitalization and continues long after discharge. We believe in empowering the patient when it comes to their health and allowing them to become part of the team. Health education is important for all of our patients and we encourage family and friends to participate and learn together.
At ECRMC, the department of education provides continuing education programs, in-service education and staff development. The goal of the education department is to promote personal development and education of staff through various educational opportunities. This creates an environment and culture that enhances personal and professional growth.
ECRMC is an Imperial Valley Community Hospital. We involve ourselves in various health fairs, lectures and partner with local agencies regularly to educate the community.
