Resurrection Health Care & Merit Sleep Centers Launch Chicago's First Sleep Network
Date:2/12/2009

CHICAGO, Feb. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Resurrection Health Care (RHC) and Merit Sleep Centers have launched a joint venture to open a network of sleep testing facilities that will be the first of its kind in Chicagoland.

As part of the agreement, Resurrection and Merit will relocate existing RHC hospital-based sleep centers to other campus-based sites and build nine new Chicagoland facilities bringing the total sleep center network size to 25 locations before the end of this year. The partnership will also involve Resurrection becoming a part owner of several existing Merit Sleep Centers. The first site of the joint venture -- the RES-Health Sleep Care Center-Lincoln Park -- recently opened its doors in the Stone Medical Center Professional Building at 2800 N. Sheridan Road.

"We have been looking for an opportunity to expand our clinical presence in sleep medicine and this partnership with Merit provides the perfect fit," noted Starr Novak, Senior Vice President, RHC Ambulatory Care Services. We are confident that this will enhance patients' ability to access prompt, expert care for the diagnosis and treatment of all forms of sleep disorders."

According to the National Institutes of Health, 70 million Americans are affected by chronic sleep disorders and intermittent sleep problems. "Sleep disorders and resulting sleep deprivation interfere with work, driving and social activities, and are responsible for billions of dollars in lost productivity and increased safety risks," said Vadim Leyenson, M.D., board certified sleep specialist and medical director of the RES-Health Sleep Care Center-Lincoln Park. To make an appointment for the RES-Health Sleep Care Center-Lincoln Park, call 888-637-4848.
