2017 Accreditation Update

The 2017 NAEC Accreditation Process was completed on March 1st.  NAEC continues to grow, granting accreditation to 15 new center applicants.  233 centers are now accredited: 181 level 4 centers and 52 level 3 centers.  The 181 hospitals with accredited level 4 epilepsy centers were reported to US News and World Report in March.  NAEC level 4 accreditation is a component of its national ranking of hospitals with top Neurology/Neurosurgery services.

NAEC would like to thank the leadership and staff of every center that participated in the 2017 Accreditation Process for their interest in providing high-quality care to people with epilepsy. All centers participating in the accreditation process should have received an email from NAEC on their accreditation process.  Please contact NAEC if your center did not receive this.
