Commission for Health Care for Sleep Services
Marion General Hospital proudly announces its approval of accreditation
status by the 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.
