Sleep Health Center

Sleep problems are common. The Regions Hospital Sleep Health Center can help.

When you get a good night’s rest, you feel better and have energy to do the things you love. But if you’re having difficulty sleeping or if you feel fatigued after you wake up, you might be dealing with a sleep disorder.

At the our sleep study clinic, we offer the latest diagnostic and treatment options for sleep apnea, insomnia and other sleep problems like narcolepsy and restless leg syndrome. It’s our goal to help you get the quality sleep you want.

Our board-certified sleep doctors, therapists and specialists will work with you to get to the root of your problem. Regions Hospital Sleep Health Center is accredited by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine, and we offer treatments that are scientifically proven to improve sleep health.

Prior to visiting our sleep health center, you’ll talk with a primary care doctor or sleep specialist about your symptoms and concerns. Depending on your specific needs, we may recommend a sleep study. A sleep study helps us get an idea of how well you’re sleeping and what’s causing sleep disruption.

We’ll use this information to create a personalized treatment plan. Your personalized care plan may include cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) machines or other sleep aid equipment, medicines or lifestyle changes. Depending on your symptoms, we may also refer you to other specialists to explore treatment options like dental devices, surgery or implants.

What happens during a sleep study

Depending on your specific symptoms, we may ask you to complete a sleep study at our sleep study clinic or from the comfort of your home.

If your sleep study is scheduled at the Sleep Health Center, you’ll sleep in a private, comfortable room that has a TV, sleep number bed, private bathroom with a shower, internet and room-darkening window shades. We’ll monitor your sleep from another room.

When you arrive at the sleep study center, a member of our team will show you the room, explain any paperwork that you need to fill out and demonstrate any equipment you may use during the study.

Once you’re ready to sleep, we’ll attach the monitor that will track your sleep. When you wake up in the morning, you can enjoy a complimentary breakfast of pastries, juice, coffee, cereal and other morning snacks.

Your care team will use the results of your study to develop a personalized care plan. This might include sleep aid equipment, lifestyle and behavioral therapy, counseling, surgery or a combination of treatments.

Before your appointment, read the sleep study instructions (PDF) and fill out a sleep log (PDF).

Cognitive behavioral therapy for chronic insomnia treatment

If you have trouble falling asleep or staying asleep for three nights a week or more, you’re dealing with chronic insomnia. Our cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia (CBT-I) program is often one of the most effective ways to treat chronic insomnia without medication.

Our cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia program lasts for 2-3 months. It’s the only one of its kind in the east metro. We’re able to recommend our CBT-I program without requiring a sleep study, and we offer CBT-I appointments remotely for your convenience.

Your first session will be a 45 to 60-minute initial assessment. We’ll talk with you about your symptoms and your goals. Our team will use information about your symptoms and sleep patterns to create a personalized treatment plan for you. Over the next few weeks, we’ll go over this plan, work with you to implement it and make any needed adjustments so you can sleep soundly at night.

Before your first appointment, read the insomnia CBT instructions (PDF).

Sleep aid equipment

Sleep disorders, including sleep apnea, can block your airways while you sleep. Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) machines, bi-level positive airway pressure (BiPAP®) and other sleep aid equipment may be recommended to help you sleep easier. Sleep aid equipment helps keep your airways open, so you get the oxygen you need for restful sleep.

Our team of sleep specialists will talk with you about your symptoms and guide you toward sleep equipment that will be most effective for you. You can purchase sleep aid equipment and replacement pieces online through the HealthPartners Home Medical store.
