NEW CPAP CENTER OPENS TO SERVE PATIENTS

SYRACUSE – Franciscan Companies has opened an additional CPAP Patient Service Center at Hill Medical Park in the New York Heart Center. The office is located at 1000 E. Genesee Street, Suite 300 in Syracuse and is open to current and new customers, as well as walk-ins.

While the center will primarily serve patients of the New York Heart Center and Sleep and Wellness Sleep Center, Franciscan welcomes the general public, too.

CPAP, or continuous positive airway pressure, is a particular type of ventilation (breathing) therapy to allow people to live home and live well. Franciscan’s RRTs utilize the latest in sleep technology to help you get a better night’s sleep.

The direct line to the center is (315) 671-1427. Franciscan operates additional CPAP Patient Service Centers at 945 E. Genesee Street and 7246 Janus Park Drive in Liverpool.
