Salem Regional to Reopen Sleep Center Monday

SALEM, Ohio – Salem Regional Medical Center will reopen its sleep center Jan. 18, resuming service for sleep studies and treatment.

The center, on the third floor of the SRMC Professional Services Building at 209 E. State St. in Salem, provides diagnostic testing and sleep apnea screening.

“The long-term effects of sleep disorders can put a person’s overall physical health and mental abilities at risk,” said Debbie Mesmer, director of medical imaging and the sleep center, in a statement. “We are looking forward to reopening this important service, which can benefit the large number of people who are experiencing poor sleep quality.”

About 70 million people suffer from a chronic sleep problem, which can have an impact on chronic diseases, mental illness and injuries. It’s also associated with lower quality of life, increased health-care costs and lost work productivity.

Dr. Alan Cropp, a board certified sleep specialist, will be Salem Sleep Center’s medical director and provide interpretation of test results.

For more information, contact the sleep center at 866 327 3600.
