Newly renovated sleep clinic offers improved patient, physician experience 
The Nebraska Medical Center Sleep Center has recently made some changes to improve patient and physician experience. These improvements include:
  • The sleep center recently has moved. The newly constructed center is on the fifth floor of the Lied Transplant Building, Room 5710. The center offers enhanced patient experience in a hotel-like environment along with new technology to recognize the most complex of sleep disorders. If you are interested in a tour of the facility, please contact Sue Clausen-Wright at 559-8554 or sclausen-wright@nebraskamed.com.
  • The center no longer requires a sleep clinic visit prior to scheduling a sleep study. Physicians can now directly refer their patient to the sleep center for a study. For more information and a direct referral form, contact Clausen-Wright.
  • The center offers studies seven nights a week to accommodate your patient's schedule.
  • The Center boasts five board certified Sleep Physicians: Dr. Mike Summers (medical director), Dr. Teri Barkoukis, Dr. Sabin Bista, Dr. Bill Baumann and Dr. Paul Ganesan.
