As an expertise center, Kempenhaeghe deals with people with complex, urgent problems in the fields of epilepsy, sleeping disorders or neurological learning and developmental disorders. Our 1,200 employees search for answers to their questions using high-quality diagnostic examinations and personal attention for the patient. We find the answers by way of tailored, sometimes less known treatment methods. And, if so required, in offering counseling in dealing with the disorder in everyday life. In substantive terms and in the contact with patients it is this depth that makes working at Kempenhaeghe attractive.
