The hospital comprises a total of 1,184 licensed patient beds and more than 20 health centers located throughout Atlanta.

Graymark Healthcare CEO Stanton Nelson said their new partnership with Emory Adventist Hospital expands their footprint into their tenth state, Georgia, and further supports their replicable model for the diagnosis and treatment of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA).

"We plan to open three to four additional locations in the Atlanta market in 2012, which we expect all together will perform about 1,500 sleep studies before year’s end," Nelson said.

Emory Adventist Hospital CEO Dennis Kiley said they are impressed by the success of Graymark’s approach to treat sleep-related health issues, particularly OSA.
