$350,000 to help establish an Epilepsy Monitoring Unit for Neuroscience at Prisma Health Richland Hospital
EMUs are typically part of a specialized epilepsy center that provides both outpatient and inpatient services to people with epilepsy, as well as their families. By adding additional EMU rooms and updating equipment, patients will have access to specialized care that is needed in the Midlands. Our fundraising campaign includes the equipment needed for two additional EMU rooms, two amplifiers and 14 monitors that will allow our Neuroscience team to monitor patients around the clock.
Establishing an EMU will help Prisma Health Richland Hospital get one step closer to becoming a candidate for accreditation from the National Association of Epilepsy Centers (NAEC) as a Level IV Epilepsy Center
Prisma Health Midlands Foundation is working in collaboration with the Prisma Health Midlands Foundation board of directors to raise $350,000 for equipment for the Epilepsy Monitoring Unit for Neuroscience at Prisma Health Richland Hospital. Learn more about how you can support the EMU by contacting Katherine Davis. Katherine.Davis@PrismaHealth.org or 803-434-2826.
Each year, 40–50 patients at Prisma Health Children’s Hospital experience a condition or injury that requires specialized rehabilitation. Help them stay at home for care.
