Southside Hospital recently received accreditation from the National Association of Epilepsy Centers (NAEC) as a Level 3 Epilepsy Center.
This designation shows that Southside Hospital provides top-notch medical evaluation and treatment of people with complex epilepsy. Level 3 NAEC centers are known for their interdisciplinary care of patients with complex epilepsies from diagnosis through treatment. The NAEC recommends that patients who have seizures that have not been totally controlled by a neurologist within a year should be referred to a Level 3 or Level 4 epilepsy center for care.
Southside’s NAEC accreditation is for 2016 and 2017. This is a renewal of Southside’s previous epilepsy center accreditation.
“To achieve this designation renewal takes a lot of dedication and hard work,” said Bhupinder Anand, MD, director of Southside’s epilepsy program. “I appreciate our staff and the hospital’s employees’ hard work to help us get this accreditation and provide the best care possible to our patients.”
