The unit will offer comprehensive, coordinated care for a broad range of pediatric neurological disorders, using a multi-disciplinary team and innovative treatment options, under the supervision of Dr. Luis Bello-Espinosa, the hospital's Chief of Pediatric Neurology.

Orlando Health Arnold Palmer cares for more than 2,000 children with epilepsy each year. With the new unit in place, this number is expected to double, if not triple, in the coming years. The critical funding raised through this house sweepstakes will help enable the doctors, nurses and staff to continue their life-saving work.
