Our Sleep Clinic Services
The West Ottawa Sleep Centre (WOSC) is an Independent Health Facility (IHF) licensed under the College of Physicians and Surgeons (CPSO). Every 5 years the College’s IHF staff selects an assessment team. The team is composed of a specialty-specific peer physician, and a technologist or nurse depending on whether the assessment is of a diagnostic and/or an ambulatory/surgical facility. For more information regarding the CPSO's review process refer to the Independent Health Facility website. WOSC was last reviewed November 2013. Click here to a review of the IHF's 27 page report.
