Boulder County's Only Accredited Sleep Program
Boulder Community Health has one of the most comprehensive sleep disorder
programs in Colorado. Our two Sleep Diagnostics Centers -- one in
Boulder and another in
Broomfield -- offer evaluations by specially trained physicians and a sleep laboratory
where patients can undergo a sleep study. As part of our comprehensive
care plans, we continue to monitor the progress of every patient after
they receive treatment.
BCH's sleep disorder program is the only one in Boulder County fully
accredited by the
American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM), the professional medical association dedicated to assuring quality care
for patients. The AASM sets standards and promotes excellence in treatment,
education and research. Accreditation ensures that:
- Staff participate in on-going education on the latest advancements in treating
- Our centers are equipped with the necessary tools to diagnose sleep and
accurately measure disorders that may occur during sleep
Through our partnership with the
Colorado Sleep Institute (CSI) we have created a comprehensive sleep center where all sleep-related services
are available at a single facility. These services include: office visits
with a sleep specialist, sleep testing, insomnia treatment, oral appliances
and continuous positive airway pressure.
Patients receive consultations with board-certified specialists and may
undergo overnight sleep studies. We then develop a holistic treatment
plan that can include therapeutic devices, oxygen or cognitive-behavioral
therapies, along with surgical or medication treatments, nutrition changes
or acupuncture. Our staff can clinically monitor therapy devices, such
as Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP), and provide analysis of
CPAP effectiveness for patients.
When necessary, diagnostic results and treatment recommendations can be
delivered 24 hours after a sleep study.
Our board-certified sleep physicians will work with you and your personal
physician to provide state-of the-art treatment and any needed follow-up
care. Because our medical staff consists of physicians who are board certified
in medical specialties in addition to sleep medicine, including neurology,
pulmonology and psychiatry, we have the necessary expertise to diagnose
and treat all varieties of sleep disorders.
Our clinical team also includes registered polysomnographic technologists
who perform overnight sleep studies on patients. Our team works closely
with an array of consultants in the community, such as experts in cognitive-behavioral
therapy, nutrition and acupuncture.
Our facilities offer comfortable, home-like settings. Each room has a queen-size
premium mattress fitted with high quality linens, private bathroom with
shower, flat screen HD television, gourmet coffee and a personal wardrobe
closet. These amenities serve an important clinical purpose: recreating
the comforts of home helps patients experience a better, truer sleep quality
that gives clinicians more accurate data.

Questions to Ask When Selecting a Sleep Disorder Center
Does the medical staff consist of a wide range of board-certified sleep
Properly diagnosing and treating sleep disorders requires a wide range
of medical expertise because of the numerous types of disorders that exist.
Sleep problems may be caused by medical, neurological or behavioral issues.
Because our medical staff consists of neurologists, pulmonologists and
psychiatrists who are also board-certified sleep specialists, we have
the necessary expertise to diagnose and treat all varieties of sleep disorders.
Does the sleep center offer a full range of services or just deliver a
Select a center that offers both evaluations by specially trained physicians
and a sleep laboratory staffed by registered sleep technologists. Patients
who require initial evaluation by a sleep specialist may not require an
over-night sleep study, but if they do they will likely receive a more
comprehensive diagnosis and treatment plan since they will already be
working with a sleep physician. Our sleep specialists have the medical
expertise to develop treatment plans with highly successful outcomes.
As part of our comprehensive approach, we continue to monitor the progress
of every patient after they receive treatment if this is agreed to by
the patient and the patient’s primary-care physician.
