Tuesday, October 11, 2016

GREENVILLE, S.C. – SleepWorks and MedBridge Home Medical, both subsidiaries of MedBridge Healthcare, have completed their acquisition of Active Healthcare’s CPAP business and its IntegraSleep sleep lab business.

“We are thrilled that our award-winning diagnostic sleep and CPAP supply program is going to a great home that values the tremendous goodwill we have built up in our community,” said Lisa Feierstein, president of Raleigh, N.C.-based Active Healthcare, which will now focus on asthma therapy and diabetes care.

Active Healthcare’s CPAP business and IntegraSleep operated as the Sound Sleep Institute, an integrated, nationally recognized program providing sleep testing and CPAP equipment and supplies.

SleepWorks, a provider of sleep laboratory management services, already performs more than 60,000 sleep studies annually across 21 states.

“Both SleepWorks and IntegraSleep place great emphasis on a patient-centric approach to sleep medicine,” said Robert Miller, vice president of operations for SleepWorks. “Their focus, like ours, is to provide the best possible care for patients with sleep apnea and other sleep disorders. Together, we will continue to provide innovative solutions and proactive care for people in the greater Raleigh market.

MedBridge Home Medical, like Active Healthcare, offers treatment for sleep apnea and other respiratory conditions.

In addition to SleepWorks and MedBridge Home Medical, Greenville, S.C.-based MedBridge Healthcare owns and operates sleep centers under the names Precision Diagnostic Services, Sleep Services of America, and Southeast Sleep; and HME companies under the names Sleep Easy Therapeutics, CPAP Solutions and Palmetto Oxygen.
