NYU Langone’s Sleep Center for Sleep Disorders is set to be closed early in March this year placing many jobs in jeopardy, reports Washington Square News.
Lisa Greiner, the senior director of institutional communications at NYU Langone handled all media inquiries on the recent announcement. She explained the reasoning behind the sudden decision to close the Sleep Lab.
“The NYU Langone Medical Center Sleep Lab at Bellevue will close in early March, necessitated by the fact that the physicians overseeing the program have resigned from NYU Langone,” Greiner said.
Many of the physicians overseeing the program resigned and began work at Mount Sinai, including the director of Sleep Medicine, Anne Mooney. WSN reached out to the physicians who left Langone, but were referred back to Greiner.
