We are proud to be the only Sleep Center in Coachella Valley to be accredited by American Academy of Sleep Medicine.

What does this mean?

According to American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM) http://www.aasmnet.org/Accred_CenterHome.aspx

  • AASM has accredited sleep facilities utilizing the AASM Standards for Accreditation of Sleep Disorders Centers. The continued quality of these requirements has made AASM center accreditation the gold standard by which the medical community and the public evaluate sleep medicine facilities.


  • AASM Accreditation of Sleep Disorders Centers acts as an indicator to patients and referring physicians that a facility is dedicated to providing the highest quality of care.


  • Through regular review and revision of the AASM Standards of Accreditation of Sleep Disorders Centers, the AASM has ensured that these requirements continue to incorporate the latest advances in sleep medicine and meet the needs of patients and referring physicians.

  • Recognizing that accreditation leads to improvements in patient care, public and private health insurance providers alike are beginning to require that polysomnographic services be performed at an accredited facility.
