We have four state-of-the-art suites designed with your comfort in mind. Each suite includes a queen mattress you can adjust to your desired level of firmness, a private walk-in bathroom with shower, wireless internet and a flat-screen television with cable.

While you rest, our staff of registered polysomnographic technologists and licensed respiratory therapists operate the latest computer monitoring equipment, which records disturbances in your circadian rhythms as well as any abnormalities, such as trouble breathing.

Once we identify the source of your sleep problem, it can usually be treated. Your sleep specialist may recommend a plan that includes:

  • Starting a diet and exercise plan to reduce weight and alleviate symptoms associated with sleep disorders
  • Taking medications or supplements

Sleep disorders at TriStar Health

Sleep disorders refer to a change or disturbance in your normal sleep patterns, often affecting the amount of sleep and quality of sleep you receive. Sleep timing — sleeping at convenient/appropriate times — may also be a concern in the case of disorders like narcolepsy. Sleep disorders can be linked to both medical and emotional causes.
