♦ The Sleep Center of Memorial Has Acheived Program Accreditation
sleepcenter.jpgSleep consumes one third of our lives. Yet few people will discuss their sleep problems with their doctors. About 70 million people in the U.S. have a sleep problem; 40 million of these are chronic problems. The effects of sleep loss and sleep disorders have been associated with a wide range of health consequences including an increased risk of hypertension, diabetes, obesity, depression, heart attack and stroke.

The Sleep Center of Memorial Hospital of Rhode Island has received a five-year program accreditation from the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM).

To receive a five-year accreditation, a sleep center must meet or exceed all standards for professional health care as designated by the AASM. The AASM accreditation is the gold standard by which the medical community and the public can evaluate sleep medicine services. The accreditation process involves detailed inspection of a center’s facility and staff, including an evaluation of testing procedures, patient contacts and physician training.

The Sleep Center of Memorial Hospital is a significant resource to the local medical community and provides quality care for patients suffering from sleep disorders. Memorial’s specialists offer outpatient and inpatient treatment of sleep disorders. Patients believed to have sleep apnea, insomnia, restless leg syndrome or other sleep disorders are first seen in the Outpatient Pulmonary Office and then evaluated overnight in the Sleep Lab.
