Shhhh! It’s time to help people get a good night’s sleep at Kenmore Mercy Hospital. The Catholic Health hospital’s new SleepCare Center is now open offering medically monitored sleep studies to help diagnose and treat a variety of sleep disorders. Catholic Health also offers sleep testing services at Sisters of Charity Hospital, St. Joseph Campus and Mercy Hospital of Buffalo.
Kenmore Mercy hosted a grand opening for the new SleepCare Center on Monday, October 4 at 1 p.m. on the hospital’s fourth floor.
“We know that by helping people get a good night’s sleep, we can improve their health,” said Alexander Gelfer, M.D, board-certified sleep specialist and medical director of the hospital’s sleep center. “If someone is having trouble sleeping, and it doesn’t get better over time, it’s time to get help.”
Up to 70 million Americans suffer from sleep disorders, with an additional 20 to 30 million affected by intermittent sleep-related problems.
