Baptist Health Paducah recently expanded its sleep center from two to four beds in renovated private rooms on the hospital’s 6th floor. Funding was provided by Baptist Health Foundation Paducah.
The Sleep Center is designed to help people discover the cause of their sleeplessness or excessive sleepiness and then determine the most effective treatment options available to them.
The center features full-size Sleep Number beds to offer a relaxing atmosphere, conducive to sleep for a better study. Fifty to 70 million adults report a sleep disorder (snoring, insomnia, sleep apnea), all serious problems that can put patients at risk for hypertension, diabetes, heart attacks and stroke.
The sleep center, accredited by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine, offers in-lab and home sleep studies, multiple sleep latency testing and a clinic for follow-up, with our board-certified polysomnographers and sleep specialist, neurologist John Grubbs, MD.
“The new sleep center has received very positive feedback from our patients,” said Jena Flood, Sleep Center director. “They love the beds, spacious rooms and having the privacy of their own restroom. We have not only doubled our capacity, but provided a wonderful space for our patients that is unrivaled in our area.”
