Sleep HealthCenters, has opened a new clinic in Brighton, Mass, offering a full range of physician-directed diagnostic and treatment services for those suspected of having sleep disorders. “Sleep HealthCenters continues to expand by adding Sleep HealthCenters throughout the state and by establishing new affiliations with respected medical facilities and the finest hospitals in Massachusetts,” said Paul S. Valentine, Sleep HealthCenters president and CEO. “Our goal is to provide access to the highest quality and most comprehensive sleep diagnostic and treatment services to all those who need it in our communities.”

Sleep HealthCenters added the Brighton clinic to better serve the growing number of people in the Boston area with sleep disorders such as insomnia, obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), excessive daytime sleepiness, narcolepsy, restless legs syndrome, and other disorders.

Services offered at the new clinic include physician consults, set ups for special equipment for OSA patients, such as PAP (positive airway pressure) devices, patient monitoring and education, and full follow up. Sleep HealthCenters also maintains close contact with a patient’s referring physician throughout the entire process, providing reports on a regular basis.

“We’re proud to be in the forefront of sleep medicine in Massachusetts, and to be able to serve a greater number of patients as we open new clinics in their communities,” said Lawrence J. Epstein, MD, Sleep HealthCenters’ Medical Director. “The local clinics, such as our new clinic in Brighton, are great resources and are convenient for patients.”
