DETROIT - The three Henry Ford sleep centers recently received program accreditation from the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM).
The sleep centers are located at Henry Ford Hospital, Henry Ford Medical Center – Columbus in Novi and Henry Ford Medical Center – Cottage in Grosse Pointe Farms.
To receive 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 is a professional medical society for clinicians, researchers and other health care providers in the field of sleep medicine. As the national accrediting body for sleep disorders centers, the AASM is dedicated to setting standards and promoting excellence in sleep medicine health care, education and research.
The AASM accredited its first sleep disorders center in 1977. Today there are more than 2,500 AASM-accredited sleep centers across the country.
The three AASM-accredited Henry Ford sleep centers are located at:
- Henry Ford Medical Center - Columbus, directed by Meeta Singh, M.D., 39450 W. 12 Mile Road in Novi.
