The sleep center at Catholic Healthcare West affiliate Mercy Gilbert Medical Center has received program accreditation from the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM).
To receive this 5-year accreditation, a sleep center must meet or exceed the standards for professional healthcare as designated by AASM. The accreditation process involves detailed inspection of a center's facility and staff, including an evaluation of testing procedures, patient contacts and physician training.
Since 1977, AASM has accredited sleep facilities. The continued quality of these requirements has made AASM center accreditation the gold standard by which the medical community and the public evaluate sleep medicine facilities.
