More than 100 million Americans fail to get a good night's sleep. Lack of sleep diminishes quality of life and personal health, and can endanger public safety on roadways. More than 98 sleep disorders have been identified, the most common being sleep apnea. The only way to be diagnosed is by participating in an overnight sleep study. Don't be left suffering with undiagnosed and untreated sleep disorders.
Via Christi Sleep Services is here to help you get the best sleep possible. An accredited, cutting-edge facility, Sleep Services can assess why you're having difficulty sleeping, and identify what can be done to address those problems. Ask your doctor whether you might benefit from a sleep study, or contact us to learn more.
Schedule a sleep study
Schedule a sleep study in two easy steps:

- Ask your physician's office to call your nearest Via Christi Sleep Lab location to schedule a sleep study and free pre-assessment with our trained sleep staff.
How your sleep center visit works
During your first appointment at the sleep center, you will meet with one of our board-certified sleep physicians who will discuss your symptoms, perform a physical exam, and explain any recommended testing that might be useful in determining your particular sleep disorder. After any testing is completed, your sleep physician will go over the results with you in detail, and make treatment recommendations. Finally, we will continue to work with you and monitor your progress with the recommended therapy.
Overnight sleep study
This test is also called a polysomnogram. You are monitored overnight in one of our sleep labs. This test is used to diagnose a variety of sleep disorders and to determine if therapy is successful.
