Why Our Sleep Labs?
The Boston Children's Hospital Sleep Laboratories combine the multidisciplinary resources of a world-renowned pediatric hospital with focused expertise in sleep medicine and sleep technology.
The Labs are part of our acclaimed Center for Pediatric Sleep Disorders, the only pediatric institution in the nation to be named an American Academy of Sleep Medicine Program of Distinction.
Expert, compassionate care team
Our Sleep Laboratories are staffed by a team of specially trained sleep physicians, sleep nurses and polysomnographic technologists who have years of experience working with children of all ages and their families.
Our Sleep Lab Director is Umakanth Khatwa, MD, a pediatric pulmonologist who also co-directs Boston Children's Center for Aero-Digestive Disorders. He is board-certified in pediatric sleep medicine and in pulmonology, and is a member of the faculty at Harvard Medical School.
State-of-the-art, child-centered accommodations
Despite the name, our Sleep Laboratories look and feel nothing like a "laboratory."
They feature clean, quiet and spacious private rooms in a well-lit, soothing, child-friendly atmosphere ... complete with games and movies to help children settle in and feel at home.
Families come first
Our Sleep Laboratories at Boston Children's are designed with the needs of families firmly in mind. All rooms include a comfortable cot for parents to spend the night alongside their children.
Exceptional patient satisfaction
As numerous testimonials can attest, our Sleep Laboratories offer an exceptional patient experience across the board.
