Sleep Well to Be Well

If you’re not sleeping well, you’re not alone. Almost half of all Americans suffer from some type of sleep disorder resulting in sleep deprivation. Insomnia, snoring, sleep apnea, restless leg syndrome, and narcolepsy may make you sleepless and harm your health. Fortunately, most sleep problems can be successfully diagnosed and treated.

Find a Sleep Center Near You

If you’re not sleeping well, talk with your primary care provider and ask to be referred to a Munson Healthcare sleep specialist.

Patients in Cadillac, Charlevoix, Grayling, Kalkaska, Manistee, Traverse City, and the surrounding areas can access sleep studies and resources to help understand why sleep is a challenge.
