Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin has been redesignated as a Level 4 Epilepsy Center by the National Association of Epilepsy Centers (NAEC). Level 4 is the highest level of specialized epilepsy care available, and the Children’s Hospital is the only Level 4 pediatric epilepsy program in the state.
“We are proud to have our epilepsy program recognized with this great honor,” said Dr. Kurt Hecox, medical director of neurology at the Children’s Hospital and associate professor and chief of neurology at the Medical College of Wisconsin. “It is a true reflection of Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin’s commitment to providing the highest level of expertise and care to our epilepsy patients.”
According to the NAEC, Level 4 centers have the professional expertise and facilities to provide the highest-level of medical and surgical evaluation and treatment for patients with complex epilepsy.
The NAEC is a nonprofit association of specialized epilepsy centers in the United States. The organization works to connect people with epilepsy to specialized epilepsy care and to support epileptologists and administrators in the operation of their epilepsy centers.
