Sleep Studies

Few things are more satisfying than a good night’s sleep. For those who find a good night’s sleep to be chronically elusive, we offer the Holy Spirit Sleep Center.

Holy Spirit has two sleep centers: 3 Walnut Street, Lemoyne, and at 20 Capital Drive, Harrisburg. The Sleep Centers feature private bedrooms with individually controlled thermostats and private bathrooms. While patients sleep, our experienced technicians are able to measure brain activity, breathing, eye and body movements, heart rate, and amount of snoring to assess sleep problems, such as sleep apnea and narcolepsy. We use the latest equipment to ensure a positive, painless experience.

Through careful monitoring of the patient’s physiological activities, we are able to get to the root of most sleep disorders.

Many people who snore and are tired when they wake up are among the estimated 40 million Americans who suffer from a chronic sleep disorder, with another 20 to 30 million having occasional sleep-related problems. Sleep disorders are common among shift workers and poor quality of sleep can lead to a host of health and safety issues or cause problems on the job or at home. Left untreated, sleep disorders can increase the risk of heart attack and stroke.

Sleep studies require a physician referral and are covered by most insurance plans. Check with your insurance program prior to scheduling a study. Sleep studies are done from Sunday through Friday. For more information, call the Sleep Center at 717-901-0317 between 7:30 a.m. and 4 p.m., Monday through Friday.
