With increasing numbers of measles cases being reported nationally and in Indiana, Franciscan Health is proactively implementing temporary visitor restrictions in some units at its Indiana and Illinois hospitals.
The Franciscan Health Sleep Center in Munster addresses the needs of patients with sleep problems. The sleep center is directed by a board-certified sleep specialist and staffed with credentialed sleep technologists with extensive training in sleep testing. This, combined with years of experience, makes for a truly comprehensive diagnostic session aimed at solving your sleep issues and regaining your body's resting ability.
Franciscan Health Sleep Disorders Center Munster was created to provide patients - adults and children - with a sense of comfort coupled with a central location and caring staff - serving our patients in their diagnosis and treatment of sleep disorders while utilizing the quickest and most reliable methods possible. By working closely with the patient and the referring physician, we provide a continuum of care that encompasses testing, treatment and results.
It's estimated that millions of Americans suffer from one or more types of sleep disorders, with difficulty ranging from excessive daytime drowsiness to staying asleep. Without prior knowledge, many aren't aware that these sleep disorders can cause serious medical problems including high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke and diabetes.
Sleep-related breathing problems, including sleep apnea and snoring
Sleep disorders are increasingly recognized in children. Members of our staff have received specialized training in pediatric sleep medicine to ensure the peace of mind and emotional well-being of both child and parent.
Make An Appointment
Do you suffer from any of these common sleep disorder symptoms?
If so, talk with your primary care physician or contact the Sleep Disorders Center to make an appointment.
If indicated, we test for excessive sleepiness, obstructive sleep apena, insomnia and other abnormal behaviors during sleep. Depending on diagnosis, sleep disorder treatment can include advice on improving sleep hygiene, prescription medication, referral for oral appliance or treatment with a Continuous Positive Airway pressure machine (CPAP).
All physician referrals are accepted. Patients may refer themselves to the Sleep Disorders Center but will require an appointment with the sleep specialist before any testing can be done. Please be prepared to provide insurance information. To schedule an appointment, call (219) 836-7535.
