Welcome to Penn State Hershey Pediatric Sleep Program at Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital. Our Multidisciplinary Pediatric Sleep team includes pulmonologists, a behavioral pediatrician, nurse practitioners and dedicated nurses and staff who specialize in treating children with sleep problems. We care for all type of sleep-related health conditions including sleep apnea, apnea of prematurity, insomnia, restless sleep and narcolepsy. We also work in coordination with Penn State programs for Adult Sleep Medicine, Pediatric Neuromuscular Disorders and Home Mechanical Ventilation to provide state-of the-art techniques in nocturnal continuous or bi-level positive airway pressure (CPAP and BiPAP) in children with complex respiratory needs. Our pediatric sleep laboratory uses the most advanced methods to study sleep and breathing throughout the night in children; from newborns to adolescents. Pediatric sleep studies are conducted at the Penn State Hershey Sleep Research and Treatment Center  which is accredited by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM).

Our team approach ensures that every child benefits from an individualized plan of care. We consider children and their families as part of this team. You can rest more easily knowing that your child will benefit from the clinical teaching excellence and research-based academic expertise found here at Penn State Children's Hospital.
