UHS Sleep Center receives accreditation
The UHS Sleep and Neurodiagnostic Center recently received a 5 year reaccreditation from the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM). In addition, they received a new accreditation from the AASM to provide Out of Center Sleep Testing (OCST) which allows for the diagnosis and treatment of sleep apnea in the comfort of the patient's home. "We are very proud of this accomplishment", said Dr. Daniel Rifkin, Medical Director, "because this proves we continue to adhere to the highest standards of the AASM while implementing the newest technologies. Sleep apnea testing and treatment in the home will not only advance the field of sleep medicine in our region, but will also enhance and improve the patient experience".
Greg Rittenhouse, Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, UHS Home Care notes:
"Congratulations to the dedicated providers and staff of the Sleep Center for this wonderful achievement. As the only AASM nationally accredited Center in the Binghamton area to provide both in-facility testing and OCST, they are now able to share their expertise with providers and patients throughout our entire network".
