Mt. Laurel, NJ (PRWEB) January 09, 2015
MTA Metro-North Railroad announced the selection of Persante Health Care, Inc. to provide medical testing and evaluation services for a seven month pilot project focusing on obstructive sleep apnea and locomotive engineers. The railroad developed the pilot project in tandem with Long Island Rail Road and New York City Transit, which will be closely following its results.
All Metro-North engineers will undergo an initial screening by the railroad’s Occupational Health Services Department. Those locomotive engineers recommended for additional screening will be referred to Persante Health Care Inc. for further evaluation, diagnostic testing and treatment.
“We are very excited to be selected by the MTA to manage their sleep apnea pilot,” said Persante Health Care, Inc.’s CEO, Mike Kaswan. “The MTA’s selection of Persante Health Care was based on our expertise in sleep medicine and extensive relationships with sleep specialists and hospital partners in MTA’s service area.”
Persante Health Care, Inc. is a leading provider of outsourced high quality diagnostic and therapeutic solutions. Our expertise allows medical professionals the freedom to practice excellent sleep medicine, healthcare institutions to increase revenue, and offers comprehensive sleep disorder services to the patients and employees that we collectively serve. Persante is currently contracted to manage over 80 sleep and balance diagnostic centers on behalf of hospitals and sleep specialists in CT, DE, FL, MA, MD, NJ, NY and PA. We look forward to continued success in both occupational and traditional patient care areas focused on diagnosing and treating patients for improved quality of life and wellness.
