Linda is co-owner of Sleep Waves, Inc. and Director of Peninsula Sleep Waves, a 9 bed sleep lab at Peninsula Regional Medical Center (PRMC) in Salisbury, Maryland.
Linda started her career in sleep in 2004 with the goal of opening a free standing sleep lab. Sleep Waves opened a 4 bed sleep lab in Salisbury in January 2007 and contracted with a DME for in house CPAP setups. A second lab was opened in Dagsboro, DE in 2010. After 5 years of growth, Sleep Waves was awarded a contract to manage the sleep lab at PRMC. Over 2500 pediatric and adult sleep studies are now performed annually at PRMC, with all the sleep business under one roof.
Linda co-authored a white paper which laid out strategies for optimizing Peninsula Sleep Waves’ impact on the health of the community, the profitability of PRMC’s DME partner, and to educate on the impact of sleep on health. This was in response to the Maryland All-Payer Model adopted by PRMC.
