Eckerd Living Center
Eckerd Living Center (ELC) is an 80-bed skilled nursing facility. ELC is physically attached to the hospital
so that emergency and acute care are just a few steps away. Each
resident is assigned a primary care physician who recommends a plan of
medical treatment, supervises diagnostics as well as therapeutic
procedures, and personally prescribes any required medication.
Highlands-Cashiers Hospital provides a special kind of compassionate,
home-focused care to terminally ill residents of Macon and Jackson
counties. The Hospice concentrates on making patients as free of pain
and as comfortable as possible while maintaining their dignity and
inner peace. A primary goal of the program is to allow patients to
remain among their loved ones as they are cared for each day.

Laparoscopic and General Surgical procedures. This is just
another way in which Highlands-Cashiers Hospital is growing and one
that is a vital part of our patient care today.
