Weatherford Regional Hospital offers an in-house sleep center that provides overnight diagnostic testing for sleep disorders. The Sleep Center is located in the old Southwestern Memorial Hospital, 215 N. Kansas, Weatherford, and is open Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday nights.
The Sleep Center provides testing used to diagnose sleep apnea as well as other sleep disorders such as restless legs, insomnia, and narcolepsy. The studies are performed by a registered sleep technologist during an overnight stay and interpreted by qualified physicians.
The sleep rooms are modeled more like a bedroom at home than a hospital room as they contain a queen size bed and flat screen televisions. Private bathrooms are attached to each room so getting ready the next morning should be no problem.
One third of our lives is typically spent sleeping and the quality of the other two thirds is often affected by it. If your sleep is not as it should be, talk it over with your physician and determine if a sleep study is right for you. To have a sleep study performed, you must have a physician order.
The scheduling number for the Sleep Center is 405-272-7034.
