  • The Sleep Disorders Center (SDC) at Winthrop-University Hospital has received prestigious reaccreditation from the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM). Considered the "gold standard" by the AASM, this notable achievement marks the fourth consecutive time that the SDC has been granted accreditation by the Academy.

    "The Center consistently meets the Academy's distinguished standards, which exemplifies our commitment to maintaining the highest level of care for patients," said Michael Weinstein, MD, Director of Winthrop's Sleep Disorders Center and Diplomate of the American Board of Sleep Medicine.

    Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) affects approximately 15 to 20 million Americans. Staffed by a team of sleep medicine specialists and sleep technologists, Winthrop's SDC offers a multidisciplinary approach to diagnosing and treating OSA and other common sleep disorders including insomnia, snoring and narcolepsy.
