DARIEN, IL – The American Academy of Sleep Medicine recently recognized eight sleep facilities for maintaining AASM accreditation for 40 continuous years, demonstrating their commitment to the provision of high-quality care for people who have sleep problems.

The AASM recognized these programs during the SLEEP 2024 annual meeting of the Associated Professional Sleep Societies, which was held June 1 to 5 in Houston. The eight programs are:

  • Cleveland Clinic Sleep Disorders Center in Ohio
  • Legacy Good Samaritan Sleep Disorders Center in Portland, Oregon
  • Mayo Clinic Center for Sleep Medicine in Rochester, Minnesota
  • MedBridge Center for Sleep Medicine in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
  • National Jewish Health Sleep Center in Denver, Colorado
  • Norton Sleep–Audubon in Louisville, Kentucky
  • Sleep Disorders Center of Alabama in Birmingham
  • UCLA Sleep Disorders Center in Los Angeles, California

AASM-accredited sleep centers provide diagnostic and therapeutic care for people who have problems related to sleep and alertness. Sleep disorders include obstructive sleep apnea, chronic insomnia, restless legs syndrome, and narcolepsy.

To receive and maintain accreditation for a five-year period, a sleep center must meet or exceed all standards for professional health care as designated by the AASM. 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 AASM accredited a sleep disorders center for the first time in 1977. Today there are more than 2,300 AASM-accredited sleep centers across the country.
