After a successful pilot program, Gordon Trucking has chosen Sleep HealthCenters to provide a nationwide comprehensive sleep apnea screening and treatment program. The program is designed to enhance roadway safety by improving the health of commercial drivers through education, diagnosis, and treatment of sleep apnea.
"Gordon has a tradition of long-term safety efforts and we are committed to offering our drivers a sophisticated sleep apnea screening program." said Scott Manthey, vice president of safety for Gordon Trucking. "We are confident that Sleep HealthCenters has the expertise to provide us with the most comprehensive screening program available to keep our drivers and roadways safe."
Sleep HealthCenters works with a network of affiliated sleep medicine providers to serve drivers around the country, guaranteeing that employees will have minimal wait times for diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up care.
"Our network of sleep specialists and respiratory therapists helps the patient select an appropriate treatment and monitor their response to therapy," says Sleep HealthCenters’ CEO Paul Valentine. "Our proprietary Web-based system, called PAPCenter, allows us to monitor each patient’s device utilization even though they may see different therapists while they are on the road in different states. All therapists are licensed in the state in which they treat Gordon Trucking patients, and the clinical standards of care are standardized throughout the program to ensure the patient receives the highest level of reliable and predictable service."
