Fairview Sleep Centers-Princeton has earned program accreditation from the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM).
“The accreditation affirms what our patients already experience, that we provide high quality, coordinated care to help solve their most vexing sleep problems,” says Oleg Froymovich, MD, sleep center medical director.
A sleep center must meet or exceed all standards for professional health care as designated by the AASM to receive accreditation for a five-year period. These standards address core areas such as personnel, facility and equipment, policies and procedures, data acquisition, patient care, and quality assurance. Additionally, the sleep center’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 Fairview Sleep Centers-Princeton on meeting the high standards required for receiving accreditation as a sleep disorders center,” said Dr. Timothy Morgenthaler, AASM president. “Fairview Sleep Centers-Princeton is an important 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 American Academy of Sleep Medicine accredited a sleep disorders center for the first time in 1977. Today there are more than 2,500 AASM-accredited sleep centers across the country.
