Dr. Suzanne Lesage

Dr. Suzanne Lesage, a board-certified neurologist with a subspecialty in sleep medicine, is rejoining the medical staff at Heart of the Rockies Regional Medical Center, effective Dec. 1.

Lesage will work part time in conjunction with the hospital’s other neurologists, Dr. Yvonne Rollins and Dr. Christopher Williams, at the HRRMC Medical Clinics, 550 W. U.S. 50, Salida.

She will provide a variety of neurology services, including treatment for headaches, epilepsy and sleep disorders, at the Salida hospital, according to a press release.

“HRRMC is pleased to once again have Dr. Lesage as a part of its medical team,” Peter Edis, HRRMC vice president of business development, said in the release. “The hospital is fortunate to have three neurologists on staff, especially given this branch of medicine is rarely offered in rural areas.”

Lesage previously worked at the Sleep Disorder Center at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, and as an assistant professor for the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences, both located in Bethesda, Maryland.

She directed a sleep program for the Veterans Affairs Maryland Health Care Systems and served as an assistant professor in the Department of Neurology at the University of Maryland Medical Center.

Dr. Lesage earned her medical degree from the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center and completed her internship in internal medicine and the first year of her residency in neurology at the University of Colorado. She completed her residency in neurology at Northwestern University in Chicago, where she was recognized as chief resident.

She followed her residency with a fellowship in sleep medicine at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center in Winston-Salem, N.C., and obtained a master’s degree in epidemiology from Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.

Lesage is a member of the American Academy of Neurology and the American Academy of Sleep Medicine.
