Patient Resources

Overnight Stays

Several local hotels offer ‘caring’ rate discounts for patients and their families. Rates are set by the hotels. They are based on occupancy and can change at any time. Your physician can provide a note verifying a patient’s family, if needed. This can be provided by your physician’s office. Please call Patient Relations at University of Cincinnati Medical Center at (513) 584-6201 if you need assistance.

Support Groups

A list of local support groups can be found on the Epilepsy Foundation of Greater Cincinnati and Columbus website.
