Genesis SleepCare is Australia's leading provider of Comprehensive Sleep Medicine. Genesis SleepCare brings together a team of medical and scientific professionals to provide accurate and rapid Sleep Diagnostic Services, Specialist Physician consulting and ongoing Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) therapy management. We are committed to improving patient outcomes and to providing access for all patients.
Our comprehensive service encompasses Specialist Physician consulting, sleep investigations (both in-hospital and at home sleep testing) and a full range of treatment options. We believe that poor quality of life, increased morbidity and even mortality associated with sleep disorders can be significantly improved by the combined management of our team of medical and scientific professionals.
Genesis SleepCare is now a part of a much larger medical group: GenesisCare. This is Australia's leading provider of CancerCare (radiation oncology), HeartCare, and Sleep Services. With more than 1400 employees, GenesisCare provides essential health care services across more than 125 sites and clinics ranging from the major capital cities to regional and rural centres.
Genesis SleepCare commenced in the State of Queensland and was known as 'Respiratory and Sleep Specialists' (QRL) and performed its first sleep study at The Wesley Hospital in 1989. In 2010, recognising the large treatment gap for sleep services within the Genesis HeartCare network and Australia as a whole, GenesisCare acquired QRL. This was in part due to the recognition that disturbed sleep and cardiovascular disease (CVD) have a reciprocal relationship. In 2010 an estimated 1.5 million Australians aged 20 or over had sleep disorders. Poor sleep quality may cause or contribute to CVD, and CVD may perturb sleep. More than 50% of patients with heart failure have sleep abnormalities.
Genesis SleepCare provides services to patients in Queensland, Western Australia and South Australia. Its position within the broader GenesisCare network also helps to facilitate patient access to heart care and cancer services where appropriate.
