Key Sleep Disorder Identified at Hennepin Healthcare

In the mid-80s, it was our own sleep center who identified REM Sleep Behavior Disorder, which causes patients to physically act out dreams in the forms of talking, shouting, hitting or punching. This disorder is now considered to be an early warning sign of Parkinson’s disease and is in the national spotlight as actor Alan Alda has come forward with the diagnosis that was preceded by the sleep disorder.

Hospital-based care

This is a hospital-based clinic owned by Hennepin Healthcare. Many insurance plans pay for health care services provided in a hospital-based clinic differently than those provided in a doctor’s office. Your insurance may require that you meet your annual deductible and/or require that you pay a percentage of the bill rather than just an office visit co-payment. You should check with your insurance company if you have any questions. Read the Frequently asked questions about hospital-based clinics to learn more.
