    The Sleep Center at St. John’s Hospital is an accredited center that provides sleep testing for infants, children and adults.

    We assist in the diagnoses and treatment of:  

    • Obstructive sleep apnea
    • Periodic limb movements of sleep
    • Nocturnal seizures
    • Narcolepsy
    • Other sleep disturbances

    Insomnia is a very common sleep disorder, but it does not require a sleep study for diagnosis. A physician referral is required for a sleep study. If you suspect you have a sleep disorder, see your primary care physician.

    Specialty Services  

    Inpatient Sleep Disorders Team 

    This team identifies hospitalized patients suspected of having obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). These patients are evaluated by a member of the Sleep Disorders Team and receive education, an appointment for an outpatient sleep study and a follow-up visit with their primary care physician.  

    Pre-operative Outpatient OSA Screenings   

    An estimated 10 percent of surgery patients have undiagnosed obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). OSA can create post-operative complications. If the patient is deemed at-risk for OSA before surgery, precautions are taken. Prior to discharge, the patient’s primary care physician is notified so an outpatient sleep study and follow-up visit can be scheduled.  

    Multi-Disciplinary Sleep Clinic  

    The Multi-Disciplinary Sleep Clinic provides care for conditions such as sleep disorder breathing and insomnia. For patients with insomnia, the Clinic offers sessions with a cognitive behavioral therapy counselor. Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) patients can speak with a respiratory therapist to discuss the results of their continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) test, as well as a dietitian to provide guidance on weight loss. Self- referrals are welcome.

    St. John’s Sleep Center is located in St. John's Health Center on South 6th Street. The Sleep Center conducts studies on Sunday through Friday nights. For more information, call (217) 757-6ZZZ (6999).
