American Academy of Sleep Medicine Accreditation

American Academy of Sleep Medicine Accreditation

Accreditation from the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM) distinguishes the Lawrence + Memorial Sleep Center as a facility that provides the highest quality of care in the field. The AASM Accreditation sets the "gold standard" by which the medical community and the public evaluate sleep medicine facilities.

How do you receive accreditation?

To receive accreditation, a sleep center/clinic must meet or exceed all standards for professional quality sleep medicine care as designated by the AASM. The AASM accreditation process includes detailed inspections of the clinic’s facility and staff and evaluations of testing procedures and policies, patient safety and follow up, and physician and staff training. In addition, the sleep center must provide clearly stated goals that include plans for positively impacting the quality of sleep medicine care in its local community. The AASM currently accredits nearly 2,000 sleep medicine centers across the country.
