SLEEP SERVICESWhen was the last time you got a good night's sleep? For those who suffer from a sleep disorder, it's probably been a long time since a restful and refreshing night of sleep. Whether it's apnea or other causes of restless sleep, we believe everything is better with a good night's sleep.
Many people suffer from daytime sleepiness, poor concentration, memory loss or irritability. If these problems sound familiar to you, you may have a sleep disorder.
Pender Community Hospital's Sleep Services Program offers the very latest diagnosis and treatment for sleep-related disorders, providing results to the patient's physician within seven to 10 business days.
More than 70 million Americans suffer from a sleep disorder. Problems sleeping can affect your health and may be symptoms of other illnesses.
If you have problems sleeping, talk with your doctor about a referral to the Pender Community Hospital Sleep Services program. We can help determine the cause and help you go back to getting a good night's sleep.
Our sleep technologist work under the supervision of Dr. Bacon, who specializes in pulmonology and consults with specialists in the areas of neurology, pulmonology, cardiology, psychiatry and otolaryngology (treatment of ear, nose and throat disorders).

What happens in a sleep test?
To receive a diagnosis and treatment recommendation for a sleep disorder, patients come to the Pender Community Hospital for an overnight stay. During your stay, sleep recordings are performed in a comfortable, home-like setting featuring a queen sized bed, flat-screen television and a private environment away from other patients and staff in the hospital.
Throughout the night, a sleep technologist monitors testing progress from an adjoining control room and is available to respond to the patient's needs during the testing process.
Logene Bach, a certified sleep specialist, joined the facility in September 2014.
With more than a decade of experience, Bach brings a wealth of knowledge to the facility. "I will ensure that every patient receives one-on-one coaching through the entire process to help alleviate any concerns or hesitations they may have coming into this evaluation. We will accommodate our patients so that they will not miss any time off from work and make them feel right at home," Bach said. "Our job is to provide you with the tools you need to get back on the road to a better night's sleep."
Those who have problems sleeping can talk with their healthcare provider about a referral to the Pender Community Hospital Sleep Services or contact PCH directly at 402-385-1841 for more information.
