Mercy Clinic Sleep Medicine has relocated to 5401 Ellsworth Road, Suite 109, which is adjacent to Mercy Sleep Center in Mercy Plaza.
The 2,000-square-foot clinic includes board-certified sleep medicine specialists Dr. Stephen Snell and certified nurse practitioner Paula Brosnan. They diagnose and treat a variety of sleep-related disorders such as insomnia, restless leg syndrome and sleep apnea, which is characterized by brief interruptions of breathing during sleep.
Mercy Sleep Center, which conducts sleep studies, is staffed by seven registered polysomnographic technologists and a certified polysomnographic technologist. Having the clinic and sleep center in one location means added space for the sleep program and increased convenience for patients.
Mercy Sleep Centers also are located at Mercy hospitals in Ozark and Waldron. The three centers recently received three-year national accreditations.
Those who think they could benefit from a sleep study may speak to their primary care doctor for a referral to one of the three sleep centers or make an appointment with Dr. Snell or Brosnan by calling 479-314-8917.
