A good night's sleep is essential for maintaining good health and well being. Jupiter Medical Center's Sleep Center is a specialty center whose sole focus is to diagnose and treat sleep-related disorders. Established in 1990, JMC's Sleep Center is the only hospital-based facility in Palm Beach and Martin Counties accredited by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine. Our goal is to help every patient achieve restful sleep.

The Sleep Center provides a comprehensive program specifically designed to evaluate and treat all types of sleep-related disorders with the quality, care and commitment that have placed Jupiter Medical Center among the most respected medical facilities in Palm Beach County. The recently relocated Sleep Center is fully equipped with sophisticated computer monitoring devices. Each of the four comfortably furnished sleep suites have attached bathrooms, ceiling fans, sound-proofing and individual temperature controls where patients are monitored while they sleep.

Our experienced and caring technical staff includes six Registered Polysomnographic Technologists (RPSGT).

If you are experiencing sleep problems, contact our Sleep Center for an evaluation. The first step is to schedule a consultation with a physician specializing in sleep medicine. He or she will review your medical and sleep history and perform a physical exam. Based on this information, the physician will order the appropriate testing.  Patients may be directly referred for a sleep study through primary care physicians that are familiar with our scheduling requirements. We will be happy to discuss your particular situation with you or your physician.

Office consultations and sleep studies are covered by all major insurance plans and Medicare.

  2. I get tired or fatigued during the day no matter how much I sleep.
  3. I have been told that I stop breathing, choke, gasp, or snort in my sleep.
  4. I have fallen asleep or get very drowsy when driving, watching TV, sitting at the movies, working, or sitting in classes or meetings.
