Health Notes – July/August 2021

LGBTQIA Advisory Group
ProMedica has created a regional LGBTQIA+ advisory group to promote the concepts of inclusion and comfort to enhance hospital healthcare. “Listening and being responsive to the diverse needs of our patients is critical to how we deliver high-quality care at ProMedica,” said Greg Braylock, vice president and chief diversity, equity and inclusion officer. If you would like to participate as a volunteer in the LGBTQIA+ ProMedica Advisory Group, email pfac@promedica.org.

Specialized Epilepsy Center 
St. Vincent Medical Center has been named a Level 3 Epilepsy Monitoring Unit (EMU) by the National Association of Epilepsy Centers (NAEC), making it one of only eight adult epilepsy centers in the state, and the only one in northwest Ohio.  As a specialized epilepsy center, St. Vincent’s provides routine care to individuals with seizures or epilepsy and specializes in providing comprehensive diagnostic and treatment services to individuals with uncontrolled seizures. Dr. Ahmed Arshad, medical director of the Mercy Health epilepsy program said,  “Epilepsy is a disorder that can have a significant impact on a person’s life. With help from our expert team, these patients can live more fulfilling lives.”
