Priority Care for Children
Ensuring your child is well-rested is our top priority. Prevea sleep and respiratory care physicians and clinical staff work closely with the HSHS St. Vincent Hospital Regional Sleep Disorders Center to provide seamless evaluation, testing and follow-up. The HSHS St. Vincent Regional Sleep Disorders Center is conveniently located at the Prevea Allouez Health Center. Our technologists are registered respiratory therapists and board-certified sleep technologists. This team of professionals is experienced in caring for pediatric sleep patients.
One-on-one care is provided for children age one and older. The littlest patients have a dedicated pediatric room and a family sleep room, so that parents have a place to relax while their child is at the sleep lab. Parents or guardians may also stay in the room with the child if they wish to do so.
