Sleep Technologist appreciation week
Published October 26, 2015
Did you know an estimated 60 million people in the U.S. suffer from a chronic sleep disorder? We are fortunate enough here at Providence to have our own Sleep Health Institute team to help those in our community.
Sleep technologists help assess, monitor and test patients to evaluate, manage and prevent sleep-related disorders. They often work the night shift, interacting directly with patients to initiate overnight sleep studies and to provide constant monitoring until morning. "The sleep technologists at Providence Sleep Health Institute play a critical role in helping us provide the highest quality of medical care for patients with sleep disorders,” says Medical Director, Dr. Anand Gersappe. "Their hard work and commitment to excellence has helped Providence become one of the leading providers of sleep-related health care in Everett."
The Providence Sleep Health Institute was established in 1986 and is open to help patients seven days a week. To learn more about the Sleep Lab, visit their website.
