Goshen Sleep Disorders Center has earned reaccreditation by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM).

AASM accreditation is the gold standard used by the medical community and the public to evaluate sleep medicine facilities. It recognizes excellence in safety, patient evaluation and care.

“This distinction reaffirms our commitment to the highest quality of care in the diagnosis and treatment of sleep disorders,” said Yatin Patel, MD, Medical Director of the Sleep Disorders Center and board certified sleep specialist. “Our goal is to help patients live longer, healthier lives full of lasting energy.”

Goshen Sleep Disorders Center is the only AASM-accredited sleep center within 25 miles of Goshen. The Center has held five-year accreditation by AASM since 2002.

“We want our community to sleep soundly every night. Sleep disorders and obstructive sleep apnea in particular are significant risk factors for heart and vascular disease,” said Ram Khattri Chettri, MBA-HCM, MS, MATS, NP-C, RN, Service Line Administrator of Heart and Vascular Services, Goshen Health. “That’s why it’s so important for people to talk to their primary care providers about any sleep problems they are having.”

The Sleep Disorders Center focuses on comprehensive diagnosis and treatment of sleep disorders, including insomnia, sleep apnea and narcolepsy. The center is also accredited by AASM to provide home sleep apnea testing.
