Port City Daily reports that recently the New Hanover Regional Medical Center Betty H. Cameron Women’s & Children’s Hospital became home to the Pediatric Sleep Disorders Center and Epilepsy Monitoring Unit, which is the only program of its kind in the area.

Specialized equipment has been installed in the hospital, allowing for close study of pediatric patients with sleep disturbances and suspected seizure activity.
