The Faculty and Staff of the Sleep Disorders Service and Research Center has established a national reputation for clinical excellence, for innovation in sleep medicine research and for providing superior training to the next generation of sleep professionals. James J. Herdegen, MD, is Director of the Sleep Disorders Service and Research Center. The sleep disorders team is multidisciplinary, including board-certified experts in psychology, neurology and pulmonary medicine.

Our experts also consult with Rush specialists in internal medicine, pediatrics, otolaryngology, bariatric surgery, and psychiatry. This multidisciplinary approach ensures the optimal clinical care for our patients.

Clinical and laboratory facilities include eight hotel-like bedrooms with private bathrooms, a state-of-the-art computerized monitoring room, four patient evaluation and examination spaces, and reception and waiting areas.

Founded in 1978, the Sleep Disorders Center at Rush was the first such center in Illinois and the first in the region to receive accreditation from the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (then the American Sleep Disorders Association). Since that time, the doctors of the center have treated more than 20,000 patients.
