The National Association of Epilepsy Centers (NAEC) recently designated the Holy Cross Hospital Epilepsy Monitoring Unit as a Level 3 Epilepsy Center. Level 3 epilepsy centers have the professional expertise and facilities to provide the highest level medical evaluation and treatment for patients with complex epilepsy.
The NAEC developed levels of care for epilepsy for use in evaluating the appropriateness and quality of epilepsy care. NAEC designation as a specialized epilepsy center means that Holy Cross Hospital not only provides routine care to individuals with seizures or epilepsy, but also specializes in providing comprehensive diagnostic and treatment services to individuals with uncontrolled seizures.
Holy Cross Hospital's Epilepsy Center combines the expertise of epileptologists, a dedicated Epilepsy Monitoring Unit and surgical treatment options to provide the best possible outcomes - and sometimes a cure - for patients.
Epileptologists are neurologists with advanced epilepsy training and experience and who work with other team members to evaluate patients, diagnose epilepsy and develop individualized and comprehensive treatment plans.
The Epilepsy Monitoring Unit at Holy Cross Hospital is a dedicated facility equipped with state-of-the-art technology to help seizure experts monitor and evaluate patients effectively.
