Asheville Sleep Center
Asheville, North Carolina – May 3, 2012
Asheville Sleep Center at Parkway Medical Group in Asheville recently received 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 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 congratulates Asheville Sleep Center at Parkway Medical Group on fulfilling the high standards required for receiving accreditation as a sleep disorders center,” said Dr. Nancy Collop, AASM president. “The Asheville Sleep Center at Parkway Medical Group 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.”
“This is a significant milestone in our sleep center’s development,” says Daniel Hey, medical director of the Asheville Sleep Center, “and we are gratified at the recognition of the center’s excellence and of our staff’s training and expertise. The most enjoyable part of sleep medicine is seeing that improvement in something so basic to life — the quality of our sleep — also leads to such immense improvement in overall quality of life.”
