Sleep Services

Forty million Americans have a sleep disorder. Are you one of them?

If you have trouble sleeping, chances are you’ve rationalized it in any number of ways. But not resting soundly on a regular basis might be costing you more than just pleasant dreams – an untreated sleep disorder can lead to serious health problems such as high blood pressure, diabetes, obesity, depression and more.

Established in 1978, Crozer Health's accredited, multidisciplinary program is the first in the Delaware Valley to earn national accreditation. Our program includes a team of board-certified physician specialists who are trained in sleep medicine, as well as other specialty areas:

  • Neurology
  • Pulmonology
  • Neuropsychology
  • Pediatric Sleep Medicine
  • Oral-Maxillofacial Surgery, Dentistry
  • Otolaryngology (Ear, Nose and Throat)

Our team also includes a caring and compassionate technical staff.

The Sleep Centers at Crozer Health Pavilion at Brinton Lake, Delaware County Memorial Hospital, and Taylor Hospital are accredited by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine. Accreditation assures patients that the Crozer Health Sleep Centers offer superior quality medical care.

Common Adult Sleep Disorders

Sleepiness is commonly experienced by anyone who is sleep-deprived. Evaluation at the Crozer Health Sleep Centers will help confirm a diagnosis and establish a treatment program. The following are the most common adult sleep disorders:

  • Chronic Sleep Deprivation: A severe and continual lack of sleep, when the patient routinely sleeps less than what is required for optimal functioning.
  • Insomnia: Short and poor quality sleep that affects your functioning during the day.
  • Narcolepsy: A chronic disorder of the central nervous system characterized by the brain's inability to control sleep-wake cycles.
  • Parasomnias: A disruptive sleep-related disorder that can occur during arousals from rapid eye movement (REM) sleep or arousals from non-rapid eye movement (NREM) sleep.
  • Periodic Limb Movement Disorder (PLMD): Simple, repetitive, uncontrollable and often imperceptive muscle movements that occur while your body is at rest.
  • Restless Legs Syndrome (RLS): A condition in which your legs feel very uncomfortable when you're sitting or lying down.
  • Sleep Apnea: A serious, potentially life-threatening condition that is far more common than generally understood.
