Port Arthur, Texas (June 21, 2016) – Getting a good night’s sleep just became easier with the expansion of The Medical Center of Southeast Texas Diagnostic Sleep Center at The Medical Center of Southeast Texas Victory Campus located at 6025 Metropolitan Drive, off Dowlen Road in Beaumont, Texas. Conveniently located on the first floor of the Beaumont hospital, the new sleep center includes four beautiful rooms each equipped with queen sized beds, flat screen TV’s, private bathrooms and massaging recliners in a tranquil environment designed to promote a peaceful night’s sleep. The reading room boasts state-of-the-art patient monitoring equipment for the physicians and techs to monitor each patient’s sleeping patterns. This center is an expansion of the services provided at The Medical Center of Southeast Texas’s existing Diagnostic Sleep Center located in Nederland, Texas which opened in November of 2012.
Not getting a good night’s sleep can cause much more than frustration and drowsiness during the day. Recent studies show a growing correlation between sleep disorders and a variety of serious health issues such as high blood pressure, increased risk of heart attack and stroke, respiratory failure, obesity, depression and much more. It is estimated that over 70 million people suffer from sleep problems and over 40 percent of children ages 8 to 10 years old experience some type of sleep disturbance. Sleep services have previously been limited for children in Southeast Texas suffering from sleep disorders, causing many children to seek assistance outside of the area. With this expansion, The Medical Center of Southeast Texas Diagnostic Sleep Center now has the advanced equipment and capabilities to care for children ages seven and up. This enables them to continue to meet the growing needs of the Southeast Texas community with quality healthcare solutions. “By expanding our Sleep Services into the Beaumont and surrounding areas, we are further exemplifying our commitment to fulfill our mission of making healthcare accessible throughout our community,” stated Richard Gonzalez, Chief Executive Officer of The Medical Center of Southeast Texas. “With our state of the art equipment to care for our children ages seven and up, we are reducing the need for our smallest patients and their families to travel outside of our area for testing and treatment.”
The Medical Center of Southeast Texas is a 224-bed hospital system providing a full range of hospital services to the Southeast Texas region. The Medical Center of Southeast Texas is in partnership with physician owners.
