(GARDEN CITY, KAS.) An open house for the Neurodiagnostic and Sleep Disorder Center at St. Catherine Hospital (SCH) is planned for Thursday, June 25th at 401 E. Spruce from 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm. The Sleep Center is located on the lower level of SCH in a familiar atmosphere complete with all the comforts of home including private bedrooms and bathrooms.

The center offers flexible hours to accommodate work schedules of patients including daytime studies for those who work night shifts. The sleep center is open Monday - Friday.
