Sleep Center

Driscoll Children’s Hospital is excited to bring this full-service, exclusively pediatric sleep center for the children of South Texas.

We strive to deliver complete care for all pediatric sleep disorders.

Our Sleep Center is located in Driscoll Children’s Hospital in Corpus Christi. Patients can be treated in person or via In-Touch, our telehealth platform used in satellite clinics.

Your sleep doctor will perform a clinical evaluation and develop a sleep care plan for your child, based on the concerns of the parents/caregivers and the primary care provider. The sleep care plan can include diagnostic testing such as a sleep study, strategic behavioral changes, referral to various specialties such as ENT and clinical follow-ups.
