Community Hospital's Sleep Services facility helps you achieve adequate and healthful sleep. A sleep technician gathers data that is later analyzed by a board certified sleep medicine physician who can recommend the proper treatment.
Two beautiful home-like sleeping suites with handicapped accessible private half baths are equipped with comfortable pillow-top mattresses, beautiful headboards, decorative wallpaper, side chairs, artwork and plump bath towels.
In addition to the comfortable rooms, having the sleep laboratory off-campus offers the patient the advantage of a quiet sleep study away from the hospital paging and patient-care activities. The off-campus facility also offers the opportunity in the future to provide sleep studies day or night-based on the person’s work and sleep cycles. To further aid in quiet, peaceful sleep, the sleep suites have black-out shades and insulated walls. Hotel-type amenities include a “breakfast on the go” brown bag complete with a muffin, fruit and juice. Bottled water and coffee are also provided.
The sleep services facility includes a sleep technician room complete with computerized and specialized testing equipment which monitors a patient’s sleep and records key sleep characteristics. Once the sleep study data is collected and recorded, a pulmonologist board certified in sleep medicine must interpret the results. Two visiting pulmonologists who see patients in McCook include Kalpesh Ganatra, M.D. and David Cantral, M.D.
Dr. Ganatra sees patients at Community Hospital’s Medical Specialists Center the first Friday of each month. Appointments may be made by calling his Hastings Clinic, Hastings Pulmonary & Sleep Clinic at 402-460-5787.
Dr. Cantral from Platte Valley Medical Group in Kearney, sees patients at the Community Hospital Medical Specialists Center on the second and fourth Wednesdays of each month. Call the Central Scheduling office at 308-344-8285 to make an appointment.
