Optimize your health and enhance your life.

At ECU Health, we know older adults want to remain as physically, psychologically and socially active as possible. As we age, adults face unique and increasing health challenges, including heart disease, heart failure, stroke, dementia and osteoporosis. It’s important for you to have a health care team ready to help and to work with you to maintain your quality of life.

Geriatric experts at ECU Health specialize in preventing and treating the diseases and disabilities that come with aging. We focus on all the aging issues — medical, social and psychological — and work closely with a multidisciplinary team to help you live as independently as possible, and as healthy as possible, for as long as possible.

The Monk Geriatric Center in Greenville is a dedicated office that serves older adults with various conditions in an outpatient setting. Geriatricians and PharmD’s are available to help review medications and educate patients on medication use.
