Restful sleep in a busy world is a goal worth attaining.

St. Joseph Mercy Hospital is pleased to offer a service designed to meet the needs of individuals with sleep problems through the Mercy Sleep Disorders Center.
The practice of sleep disorders medicine has grown significantly in size and importance in recent years due to the recognition of the incidence of sleep disorders and their impact on overall health, along with the establishment of somnology as an important medical specialty. As a result, there is a growing need to provide quality and consistent sleep diagnostic and treatment services for conditions such as:

The Mercy Sleep Disorders Center offers full patient evaluations by consultation, including:
- an interview
- physical exam

Some patients may require an overnight polysomnography (sleep study), a painless sleep test used to diagnose sleep disorders by monitoring brain waves, muscle tension, eye movement, respiration, oxygen level in the blood and audio monitoring.
To add to patient comfort and security, the Mercy Sleep Disorders Center is located within St. Joseph Mercy Hospital in a beautifully remodeled and dedicated center on the east front of the hospital; with ease of access on the hospital's main floor and its own patient entrance. This new, state of the art center has been designed for patient convenience and includes private suites, a patient lounge and kitchen.
