The King's Daughters' Health Sleep Center in Madison recently received program accreditation from the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM).
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. KDH is one of more than 2,600 AASM-accredited sleep programs across the country.
"The American Academy of Sleep Medicine congratulates the King's Daughters' Health Sleep Center on meeting the high standards required to earn accreditation as a sleep disorders center," said Dr. Raman Malhotra, AASM president. "The King's Daughters' Sleep Center 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."
Dr. Scott Frede serves as the medical director for the KDH Sleep Center, which is located inside King's Daughters' Hospital at 1484 East SR 62, Madison, Indiana.
The American Academy of Sleep Medicine is a professional medical society for clinicians, researchers and other healthcare providers in the field of sleep medicine. As the national accrediting body for sleep disorders centers, the AASM improves sleep health and promotes high quality, patient-centered care through advocacy, education, strategic research and practice standards.
