ETMC Sleep Center Pittsburg recently received program accreditation from the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM).

"The American Academy of Sleep Medicine congratulates ETMC Sleep Center Pittsburg on fulfilling the high standards required for receiving accreditation as a sleep disorders center," said Dr. Nancy Collop, AASM president. "The ETMC Sleep Center Pittsburg 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 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.
