leading centre of medical expertise
Kempenhaeghe is a leading center of expertise for epileptology, sleep medicine and neurocognition in the Netherlands and beyond. An outstanding clinical care with a multidisciplinary approach. Kempenhaeghe originally opened in 1919 to care for men with ‘falling sickness’, and by 2013 it had grown into a world-renowned third line center of expertise for epilepsy, sleep disorders and neurological learning and developmental disorders. Kempenhaeghe stands out from other centers of expertise in the Netherlands as it specialises in all aspects of high-quality care: from outpatient treatment to accommodation and from diagnostic research to academic studies.
Kempenhaeghe is a leading centre of medical expertise, offering diagnosis and treatment to adults and children who suffer or are suspected to suffer from a complex form of epilepsy, a sleeping disorder and/or neurological learning disabilities.
Kempenhaeghe collaborates intensively with other epilepsy centres, hospitals and academic centres both in the Netherlands and abroad, as well as with patients and professional associations. Recently, a shared academic centre of epileptology was set up together with Maastricht University Medical Centre (Maastricht UMC+).
