St. Mary’s Regional Sleep Center has again received a five-year accreditation from the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM). The Sleep Center has been accredited by the AASM since 1997.
To receive and maintain accreditation, a sleep center must meet or exceed all standards for professional health care as designated by the AASM. These standards address core areas such as personnel, facility and equipment, policies and procedures, data acquisition, patient care, and quality assurance. Additionally, the sleep center’s goals must be clearly stated and include plans for positively affecting the quality of medical care in the community it serves.
“Our Sleep Center team is committed to meeting the highest standard of care for patients experiencing issues with sleep,” said Tammy Walls, RN, clinical manager, St. Mary’s Regional Sleep Center. “We are so appreciative of this accreditation confirming that commitment.”
“Sleep is essential to good health, and the effective treatment of sleep disorders can be life-changing,” said Jennifer Martin, PsyD, AASM president. “The center is an important resource for the local community and provides the highest quality care for people who have sleep disorders.”
Directed by HIMG pulmonologist and critical care physician, William R. Beam, MD, St. Mary’s Regional Sleep Center is located at 2801 South Staunton Rd., in Huntington. The Sleep Center offers 12 sleep clinic beds, a home-like environment for patients, hotel-like patient amenities and reserved parking.
The American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM), the national accrediting body for sleep disorders centers, is a professional medical society for clinicians, researchers, and other health care providers in the field of sleep medicine. The AASM improves sleep health and promotes high quality, patient-centered care through advocacy, education, strategic research, and practice standards.
