Sleep suites offer Select Comfort Sleep Number beds, flat-screen televisions, and private bathrooms with a shower. You can sleep according to your usual sleep patterns, waking at 6 or 6:30 a.m. (or earlier, if needed), eat a great breakfast at our on-site deli, and shower and get ready for the day either at home or in your sleep suite. We also offer Friday night sleep studies.
Any physician can refer patients for a sleep study, and a staff pulmonologist reviews the referral before the test is ordered. Ask your doctor about a referral for a sleep study at the Avera McKennan Sleep Diagnostic Center. To learn more, call 605-322-REST (7378).
