Memorial Opens Sleep Center in Gulfport

GULFPORT, Miss. – April 22, 2024 – Memorial Health System is proud to announce it has opened Memorial Sleep Center Gulfport, featuring state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment and board-certified sleep specialists. The clinic is conveniently located near Memorial Hospital Gulfport at 1118 Broad Avenue.

According to the Institute of Medicine (US) Committee on Sleep Medicine and Research, 80 to 90 percent of adults with clinically significant sleep-disordered breathing remain undiagnosed. Patients who suffer from excessive daytime sleepiness, lack of energy during the day, snoring, disturbed sleep, morning headaches, waking with a dry mouth or sore throat, mood changes, or waking up gasping for air could benefit from an overnight sleep study.

“When someone isn’t able to fall asleep or stay asleep, it’s a domino effect on their health,” says Memorial Health System Sleep Specialist and Pulmonologist Dr. John Douglas. “We are committed to assessing the patient’s complete sleep health and helping patients who are suffering from chronic irregular sleep. Our goal is to help our patients reclaim restorative sleep so they can live healthier, feeling refreshed and ready to face the day.”

This sleep center specializes in Sleep Apnea, Insomnia, “Restless Leg” Syndrome, Narcolepsy, sleepwalking, night terrors, and other conditions. The facility features private rooms, and Memorial sleep specialists are available to evaluate and recommend appropriate treatment options for individual needs according to the sleep study outcomes.

Services for this location include:

  • Complete sleep evaluation
  • Polysomnography (sleep study)
  • CPAP/BiPAP Titration Polysomnogram
  • Split Night Polysomnogram
  • Multiple Sleep Latency Test (MSLT)
  • Maintenance of Wakefulness Test (MWT)
  • Home Sleep Testing
  • Department of Transportation certifications

The public is invited to attend a celebratory ribbon cutting taking place at the clinic on Wednesday, May 29, at 4 p.m. in partnership with the Mississippi Gulf Coast Chamber of Commerce. A referral from a patient’s primary care provider or another specialist is needed before a sleep study can be conducted.
