Epilepsy Center Bringing hope to those with seizure disorders

How We Help

The first of its kind in Delaware, the ChristianaCare Epilepsy Center helps individuals living with seizures improve their quality of life through personalized, ongoing care. You can schedule a consultation by calling 302-623-3017.

  • One-of-a-kind care: In Delaware, there are 9,700 active epilepsy patients, including 8,400 adults that previously had to travel out of state for their care. The ChristianaCare Epilepsy Center is the only program of its kind for adults right here in Delaware.
  • Setting the standard: The Epilepsy Center received Level 3 designation from the National Association of Epilepsy Centers. This is awarded to centers with the expertise and facilities to treat complex epilepsy in inpatient and outpatient settings.
  • Epilepsy monitoring: An important feature of the center is our Epilepsy Monitoring Unit. It provides a safe, controlled environment to analyze epileptic seizures, identify potential causes and develop individualized treatment plans.
  • Integrative teamwork: Treating epilepsy involves multiple caregivers, including primary care physicians, neurologists, behavioral health specialists, nurses and more. Our center becomes a single, trusted point of contact for our patients.

Earned Level 3 designation from the National Association of Epilepsy Centers — a first for a center of its kind in Delaware.
