$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.
We’re celebrating the 30th birthday of Walk for Life! For years, we’ve been walking and running for Prisma Health Breast Center in Columbia, S.C. We’re moving to a virtual Walk for Life and Famously Hot Pink Half Marathon, 5K + 10K this fall. You can lace up and get moving in your own neighborhoods or nearby parks—all while continuing your support of patients and families faced with breast cancer.
At this time, it’s best for some medically fragile children to stay home. To help reduce any risk of these children being exposed to COVID 19, pediatric subspecialists and team members have been hitting the road in the Prisma Health Mobile Health Unit to see the children in their own communities.
They’re “Taking Children’s Hospital on the Road,” and we’re committed to keeping those wheels turning! Champions Society and Rising Champions, annual giving societies for Prisma Health Children’s Hospital—Midlands, invite you to be part of their campaign to support this incredible mobile program for the kids.
