As an extension of the University of New Mexico Health Sciences Center Program in Sleep Medicine, the Sleep Disorders Center (SDC) at UNM Sandoval Regional Medical Center offers expert sleep disorder diagnosis and treatment to the residents of Rio Rancho, Sandoval County, and the Westside of Albuquerque. Since its opening in September of 2013, The SDC at UNM SRMC provides both outpatient clinical services and an inpatient sleep laboratory where sleep studies are conducted.

There are over 100 sleep disorders, and we diagnose and treat all of them. Our trained medical and technical staff is dedicated to the diagnosis and treatment of sleep/wake disorders in adults and provides comprehensive services to individuals having symptoms occurring during sleep or while awake due to unrefreshing sleep. The SDC medical team consists of sleep medicine experts from the fields of pulmonary medicine, internal medicine, and neurology, as well as registered & licensed Polysomnographic (sleep) Technologists.

The SDC Lab, located on the 5th Floor of UNM SRMC, consists of four private rooms, each equipped with state-of-the-art technology and serviced by a team of highly-trained staff. In addition to providing the most advanced, cutting-edge care for patients ages 18 and up, the SDC at UNM SRMC offers its patients a calm, quiet, and serene environment with beautiful views of the Sandia Mountains.
