Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula’s Sleep Disorders Center has been helping people get a better night’s sleep for two decades. Join us on Wednesday, April 20 to mark the center’s 20th anniversary and to learn what might be keeping you up at night and what you can do about it.

Dr. Richard Kanak, medical director of the sleep center, will talk about healthy sleep habits, common sleep problems, and how lack of sleep affects your overall health. You can also tour the sleep center, meet our sleep professionals, and enjoy light snacks.

The talk is from 5:30-6:30 p.m., followed by tours from 6:30-7 p.m. The event is in the Poppy/Lupine conference rooms at Community Hospital’s Ryan Ranch Outpatient Services campus, 2 Upper Ragsdale Drive, Building D, on the second floor. Registration is required at

The Sleep Disorders Center was the first in Monterey County to be accredited by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine. Since our opening in 1996, we’ve worked with nearly 13,000 people with issues including sleep apnea, persistent insomnia, restless legs syndrome, and narcolepsy. More information about the sleep center is available at or by calling 649-7210.
