Senator John J. Flanagan (2nd Senate District) recently joined Stony Brook University Hospital as it officially opened its new Sleep Disorders Center in Smithtown. The center, located at 240 Middle Country Road, is a new multidisciplinary, state-of-the-art facility that is equipped with eight bedrooms and uses the newest technological advances for conducting sleep studies.

Senator Flanagan joined Richard N. Fine, M.D., Dean, Stony Brook University School of Medicine, as he cut the ribbon on the new facility. They were joined by Assemblyman Michael Fitzpatrick and the multidisciplinary team of the Sleep Center’s three physician-directors who are board certified in Sleep Medicine: Avram Gold, M.D., Medical Director for Internal Medicine; Catherine Kier, M.D., Medical Director for Pediatrics; and, Marta Maczaj, M.D., Medical Director for Psychiatry.

Stony Brook University Hospital Sleep Disorders Center provides sleep studies for Internal Medicine, Pediatrics and Psychiatry as well as clinic services for Psychiatry and Internal Medicine. The Center, established in 1979, is one of the oldest in the country and has been a leader in Sleep Medicine for the past 27 years. It hosted the first ever board examinations for Sleep Technologists.

"The opening of this center presents a great opportunity for the residents of our community to get the medical help they need closer to home. With my offices located in Smithtown, I welcome them to the area and wish them all the best in their efforts to offer assistance to local residents," stated Senator Flanagan.
