Children’s Hospital Los Angeles’ Neurological Institute, a first-of-its kind program, brings together experts from the Division of Neurology and Division of Neurosurgery to provide well-coordinated, comprehensive treatment. This project supports two of the Institute’s highest priorities: establish and support an endowed chair for the Chief of the Division of Neurology: and, upgrade and expand the Epilepsy Monitoring Unit (EMU).
The Las Madrinas Endowment for the Chief of Neurology and the Neurological Institute Epilepsy Program will ensure that children in our community with a neurological disorder can always rely on Children’s Hospital Los Angeles for the type of care that frees a child from debilitating seizures, helps a teen with muscular dystrophy regain strength and creates hope for patients diagnosed with a brain tumor.
By establishing an endowed chair for the Chief of the Division of Neurology and funding an upgrade of the Epilepsy Monitoring Unit, Las Madrinas will:
- Support expert, visionary leaders—now and for generations to come—in their quest to revolutionize pediatric health care, research and education
- Increase the hospital’s capacity to provide timely treatment to more patients in the EMU
- Equip the EMU with the most advanced diagnostic tools, which will be used to develop precise treatment plans tailored for each child
