• The Sleep Disorder Center at St. Thomas More Hospital

  • The St. Thomas More Hospital Sleep Disorders Center is conveniently located on the second floor of the hospital at 1338 Phay Ave. in Cañon City. Since sleep diagnostic studies are usually done overnight, we've designed the rooms to help put our patients at ease - they are beautifully appointed and feature a television, VCR, and private bathroom with shower. St. Thomas More Hospital's Sleep Disorders Center

    Established in 2000, the Sleep Disorders program is medically overseen by Pueblo-based pulmonologist Dr. Craig Shapiro and the St. Thomas More Hospital Sleep Disorders staff. Our registered polysomnogram technologists are skilled at making patients as comfortable as possible by answering any questions they may have, and making sure the room meets their needs.
