Marion General Hospital proudly announces its approval of accreditation status by Accreditation Commission for Health Care (ACHC) for Sleep Services.

Achieving accreditation is a process where healthcare organizations demonstrate compliance with national standards.  Accreditation by ACHC reflects an organization’s dedication and commitment to meeting standards that facilitate a higher level of performance and patient care.

Accreditation is the “Gold Standard” by which the medical community and the public can evaluate sleep medicine services.  “Accreditation inspires a high level of confidence for our patients and referring physicians,” states Tom Oney, MGH’s Director of Ancillary & Support Services.  “This is an important step that represents the hospital’s continued commitment of providing the highest level of care to our patients. We are extremely proud of this achievement and the tremendous effort on the part of the staff that made this major accomplishment.”

The MGH Sleep Lab is located at the Northwood Medical Center at 1387 N. Baldwin Ave.  It specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of sleep disorders, including snoring, sleep apnea, insomnia, restless leg syndrome and others.  Sleep testing can also be arranged in the home setting and is offered during daytime hours at the lab if appropriate. 

ACHC is a not-for-profit organization that has stood as a symbol of quality and excellence since 1986.
