October 25, 2011

Wichita, Kansas –Wesley’s Sleep Disorders Center has received program accreditation from the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM).

“The American Academy of Sleep Medicine congratulates Wesley Sleep Disorders Center on fulfilling the high standards required for receiving accreditation as a sleep disorders center,” said Dr. Nancy Collop, AASM president. “The Wesley Sleep Disorders 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 health care as designated by the 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. 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. The American Academy of Sleep Medicine currently accredits more than 2,200 sleep medicine centers and laboratories across the country.

“Accreditation from the American Academy of Sleep Medicine assures that only the highest quality medical care is being provided at Wesley Sleep Disorders Center. Our accreditation represents many hours of work by our staff, and we are proud of this accomplishment,” said Dr. Hugh Ekengren, Director of Wesley’s Sleep Disorders Center.
