Northside Hospital’s Sleep Disorders Center has announced the expansion of its services with additional locations, including a new facility in Sandy Springs.
According to the National Sleep Foundation, approximately seven out of 10 Americans are affected by a sleep problem, although most remain undiagnosed and untreated. Northside Hospital has cared for Atlanta’s sleep deprived for more than 25 years and was the first fully accredited sleep center in Georgia.
Over the last year, Northside has made its sleep disorders services increasingly more accessible to patients. In March 2014, the hospital moved its original Sleep Disorders Center on Peachtree Dunwoody to a renovated space in the medical offices directly across the street from the hospital. The new space allows Northside to grow from a six-bed facility to 10 beds and accommodate more patients.
All sleep rooms are complete with new furniture and linens, flat-screen televisions with cable, DVD players, complimentary WiFi, sound machines and more. Each sleep room is equipped with a private bathroom and its own thermostat for individual climate control. Turn-down service with breakfast in bed is complimentary with all rooms.
Northside’s comprehensive sleep disorders services also include additional sleep labs in Sandy Springs, Canton and Cumming, as well as another recently renovated Sleep Disorders Center in Roswell. Together, these facilities treat more than 1,000 patients a month for problems such as sleep apnea, insomnia, narcolepsy and more.
At all of the Northside Hospital Sleep Disorders Centers, Northside’s specialized team of sleep professionals utilizes the latest software and technology in diagnosing and treating sleep/wake disorders. In addition, each center offers portable in-home sleep studies, Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) set-ups and trouble shooting, with personalized instruction and fitting.
“Nearly everyone is going to suffer a sleep problem at some point in their lives,” said David Westerman, M.D., medical director, Northside Hospital Sleep Disorders Center. “We hope that these renovations and expanded services will exceed our patients’ expectations for comfort and continue to help Northside diagnose and treat sleep problems for thousands of Atlantans.”
