"The American Academy of Sleep Medicine congratulates Parkview Hospital Sleep Disorders Center on fulfilling the high standards required for receiving accreditation as a sleep disorder center," said Dr. Lawrence J. Epstein, President of the AASM.‑ "The center is a significant resource to the local medical community and will provide academic and scientific value in addition to the highest quality care for patients suffering from sleep disorders."

To receive a five-year accreditation, a sleep center must meet or exceed all standards for professional quality healthcare as designated by the AASM.‑ The AASM accreditation process involves detailed inspection of a center's facility and staff, including an evaluation of testing procedures, patient contacts, and physician training.‑ Additionally, the facility's goals must be clearly stated and include plans for positively affecting the quality of medical care in the community it serves.‑ Currently, the AASM accredits 825 sleep medicine centers and laboratories across the country.

The AASM is a professional membership organization dedicated to assuring quality care for patients with sleep disorders, promoting the advancement of sleep research, and providing public and professional education.
