The Johns Hopkins Center for Sleep has opened at Howard County General Hospital in Columbia, the hospital announced Tuesday.

While the hospital has had a sleep center for several years, officials said, the new center will offer an outpatient clinic as well as inpatient services, and provide consultations with various Hopkins specialists.
The Columbia hospital is a member of Johns Hopkins Medicine.

The sleep center is directed by Hopkins sleep specialists Charlene Gamaldo and Rachael Salas. Other team members include specialists in the fields of neurology, pulmonology and psychiatry/behavioral sciences.

The center will treat a full range of sleep disorders and patients of all ages, officials said, and employs new research and technology for diagnosing and monitoring patients, including take-home technologies for patients so they can be treated in their own homes.
