At Sparrow, Sleep Technologists in The Sparrow Sleep Center play a key role in helping Patients who have sleep apnea and other sleep disorders. By helping to diagnose and make recommendations for treatment, the Sparrow Sleep Center strives to assist Patients with improving their overall health, self-regard and productivity.

In honor of Sleep Technologists Appreciation Week, we’d like to shine some daylight on our Caregivers who work hard to ensure we get a good night’s rest.

Samson Dejene, Sleep Lab Technician, and Beth O'Brien, Sleep Center Supervisor

The Sparrow Sleep Center has 12 outpatient beds and operates seven nights a week. We also offer two-bed sleep centers at our Sparrow Clinton and Sparrow Ionia locations.

Cindy Alling, a day-shift Sleep Technician, has worked at Sparrow for almost 29 years.

We perform sleep testing on all ages, predominately evaluating for Obstructive Sleep Apnea, and our CPAP troubleshooting clinic helps Patients who are struggling with their CPAP at home. And, we have recently begun performing sleep studies in the comfort of your own home.
