2012 Sleep Disorders celebrates accreditation
WDH’s Sleep Disorders Center received accreditation from the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM) in 2012.
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.

WDH’s Neuroscience Supervisor Tim Porter says “because people spend approximately one-third of their life sleeping, it is imperative to have quality sleep in order to stay healthy. We are proud of all our Sleep Disorders staff for their dedication to improving the quality of sleep for our patients.”

“The American Academy of Sleep Medicine congratulates the Sleep Disorders Center on fulfilling the high standards required for receiving accreditation,” said Dr. Sam Fleishman, AASM president. “The 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.”

The WDH Sleep Disorders Center, led by Medical Director Noel Wheeler, MD, FAASM, FCCP, provides state-of-the-art computerized recording equipment to monitor sleep, breathing patterns, heart rate, eye movement, muscle and brain wave activity as well as oxygen flow. With the information recorded, staff evaluate the cause and determine the proper treatment for the patient. Congratulations to our Sleep Disorders Center staff for their accomplishment!
