Improved Sleep for Better Health
Restful sleep is a vital part of your overall health. Catholic Health sleep centers across Long Island help diagnose and treat sleep disorders for adults and children, including insomnia, narcolepsy, restless leg syndrome and sleep apnea.
Our board-certified sleep specialists conduct overnight sleep studies in an environment that is safe and comfortable for patients. For those unable to travel, our specialists will discuss the options of virtual sleep consultations and home sleep testing.
Catholic Health Sleep Centers
Good Samaritan Hospital's Sleep Disorders Center (West Islip, NY), accredited by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine, is a full-service sleep disorders center staffed with board-certified sleep specialists who diagnose and treat sleep disorders.
The center evaluates patients who are 16 years old and older. Sleep studies are performed in our AASM accredited sleep center by New York State licensed sleep technologist staff. We offer the latest treatment options to prevent long-term consequences of sleep disorders and improve your quality of life.
Good Samaritan Hospital's Pediatric Sleep Center (West Islip, NY) is devoted to the treatment of children who are in need of diagnostic sleep studies. Many children suffer from obstructive sleep apnea, which can impact proper weight gain and growth as well as lead to behavioral and learning problems. A child who snores should be evaluated for sleep apnea as their untreated daily behaviors often can mimic what may be thought to be attention deficit disorder.
Diagnosis of childhood sleep issues, for patients under the age of 16, is done through a consultation with a board-certified sleep specialist followed by a scheduled overnight stay for testing in our dedicated pediatric sleep center. The center is furnished and decorated in a child friendly manner with our pediatric patients in mind. Parents stay with their child in the testing bedroom. The center offers a comfortable sleeping area for parents.
We do not use invasive equipment. Our testing involves the measuring of breathing, brainwaves and limb movement. The most common treatment for obstructive sleep disorders in younger children is the removing of tonsils and adenoids. This often helps each child perform better at home and in school.

Artificial Intelligence for Faster Results
All Catholic Health sleep centers use artificial intelligence (AI) to analyze sleep studies. The process allows faster diagnosis of sleep disorders such as sleep apnea.
During a sleep study, multiple data points are recorded. These include:
- Brain waves
- Breathing patterns
- Cardiac signals
- Leg movements
The information collected from a sleep study report can fill hundreds of pages. This time-consuming process is now reduced to about 20 minutes a report. A board-certified physician reviews each sleep report.
AI means faster follow-up appointments and less time spent handling the health challenges caused by sleep disorders.
