Let Us Help You Sleep Well

Quality sleep is essential to good health. If you snore, struggle to fall asleep or stay asleep — or feel sleepy all day despite sleeping through the night — you may have a sleep disorder. Between 50 and 70 million American adults have sleep or wakefulness disorders.

Too little or poor sleep not only leaves you feeling drowsy or edgy all day, but it’s bad for your health.

The staff of the Mercy Health – Sleep Center is dedicated to quality, compassionate patient care. Our board-certified physicians and credentialed technologists have many years of experience in the field of sleep medicine and are highly trained in the diagnosis and treatment of sleep disorders.
