BUFFALO, N.Y. — The John R. Oishei Women and Children's Hospital has received a gift of $1 million to establish a center to monitor epilepsy.
The James H. Cummings Foundation announced the donation Tuesday to help establish the James H. Cummings Foundation Epilepsy Monitoring Center.
Epilepsy is the most prevalent child neurological disorder and officials say the new, 12-bed unit will have sophisticated equipment, which will allow for comprehensive evaluation and far more complex surgeries.
"To have the Gates Vascular Institute, to have the new UB School of Medicine and to have this new Children's Hospital, we're pleased and proud to be part of this movement to a greater use of the community assets we have," said Charles Kreiner Jr., James H. Cummings Foundation.
The donation is part of $30 million that's been raised to date for the new hospital.
