A multidisciplinary team for epilepsy diagnosisThe EMU brings together specially trained experts in technology and patient care specific to epilepsy. Your EMU team may include Providence Mission Hospital neurologists, neurosurgeons, nurse specialists, EMU technologists, clinical technologists, psychologists, psychiatrists, case managers and social workers to cover all the aspects of life affected by seizures.
Epilepsy Monitoring Unit (EMU)The Epilepsy Monitoring Unit at Providence Mission Hospital is a specialized inpatient unit designed to evaluate, diagnose, and treat seizures in patients of all ages. The only one of its kind in south Orange County, this unique unit is equipped with computer-based monitoring equipment specifically designed for the evaluation of seizure disorders. As a result, Mission’s EMU team can gather data before a seizure starts, while one is occurring and during recovery. This invaluable information helps doctors identify the type(s) of seizures and other clues that can shape treatment.
Parkinson’s disease treatmentAt Mission Hospital, people with Parkinson’s disease and other movement disorders receive academic-level care in a compassionate community-hospital setting. Our patient-centered team takes the time to help you understand the patient’s condition and the latest options for treatment – whether that means medications, botulinum toxin therapy, deep brain stimulation or other innovative therapies. Our goal is to provide exceptional care and support aimed at minimizing symptoms, optimizing function and helping our patients live their best life.
Collaborative program developmentThe Neurological Institute fosters collaborative program development with other specialties throughout the hospital and health system. The program includes neuro-oncology, a regional approach to identifying the best care for personalized treatment. Meanwhile, the Severe Brain Injury Program has been recognized for clinical excellence by the Joint Commission and is a leader in the management of severe TBI using multimodality monitoring. Our surgical ICU has received numerous AACN Circle of Excellence awards. And Mission’s Concussion Clinic was developed in 2017 to treat patients who need additional therapy and support from concussions.
