Sleep affects your quality of life

We regret to inform our community that the Sleep Lab will be temporarily closed due to an unforeseen staffing shortage. We are currently working to hire temporary staff to run the Sleep Lab until the permanent sleep technician returns. We anticipate that the Sleep Lab will reopen in approximately two weeks. Once a reopening date is identified it will be posted on the Gunnison Valley Health website.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause to our patients and community. Thank you for your patience as we work to secure temporary staffing.

Approximately 15% of the general population suffers from sleep disorders. Insomnia is the most prevalent followed by sleep apnea. Obstructive Sleep Apnea is the most common and a potentially serious sleep disorder. It causes breathing to repeatedly stop and start during sleep.

Symptoms that may indicate a sleep disorder:

  • Daytime sleepiness and generally tired all the time
  • Restless sleep at night
  • Bedcovers are in disarray upon waking
  • Snoring that rouses you or others in your household
  • Suddenly awoken gasping for breath
  • Difficulty concentrating or poor memory
  • Pauses in breathing during sleep
  • Frequent urination at night

If you can identify with any of these symptoms, you may have a treatable sleeping disorder.

Sleep Study Programs

At Gunnison Valley Health, we offer sleep study programs and can perform a diagnostic sleep study to help explain your symptoms. A Registered Sleep Technologist attends and reports on your sleep study data. When participating in a sleep study, altitude matters. It is highly recommended to participate in a study at the altitude in which you live for the best results.

Schedule an Appointment

If you would like to schedule an appointment, please first speak to your primary care physician for a referral. If you have additional questions or would like more information please contact the Sleep Lab at (970) 642-4811.
