Apnée Santé: first sleep clinic in the Suroît!
Twelve years ago, Larissa Pickering, a Hudson native, founded Apnée Santé in Valleyfield, an area long ignored by private sleep companies and not well-served by the public system. Apnée Santé was the first sleep clinic in the area of the Suroit. Previously, patients had to travel to Montreal to be tested and treated for sleep apnea.
Opening its clinic in the Havre Santé Medical Clinic, the reference center for family medicine in the area, Apnée Santé assisted and collaborated with local doctors to provide patients with timely and accessible services.
Apnée Santé was the first to bring sleep doctors to the area. Dr. Poirier, respirologist at the CHUM and Apnée Santé’s medical director, is himself from Valleyfield! Happy to support his hometown, he has been consulting with our patients for the past 12 years at our clinic every month.
Nadine Larochelle, a respiratory therapist who also hails from Valleyfield, has worked at Apnée Santé since its inception. Her passion is patient care and it’s reflected in the warm reception she receives from her patients, whether at the clinic or grocery shopping on Saturday or attending hockey games!
