PCH Sleep Laboratory Fully Accredited October 22, 2013

Posted by mvarlan in Uncategorized.

The Sleep Medicine Program at Phoenix Children’s Hospital treats a variety of problems that hinder healthy sleeping habits and keep children and their parents from having a comfortable night’s rest. Dr. Rupali Drewek and Dr. Matt Troester (HH specialist) lead a team committed to providing the best physical and emotional support to children and parents of children with sleep problems. Dr. Drewek and Dr. Troester are the only triple board certified providers of these services in Arizona.

Phoenix Children’s Hospital now has the only exclusively pediatric American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM) accredited sleep laboratory in the Southwest. Our clinic is also only one of seven such pediatric-only accredited sleep centers in the entire western U.S.

To receive a five-year accreditation, a sleep center must meet or exceed all standards for professional healthcare as designated by the AASM. The accreditation process involves detailed inspection of a center’s facility and staff, including an evaluation of testing procedures, patient contacts, and physician and sleep technologist training. Additionally, the facility’s goals must be clearly stated and include plans for positively affecting the quality of care in the community it serves.

This accomplishment is the culmination of a great deal of hard work and will help us provide better sleep medicine care to our patients. Congratulations to our dedicated staff (particularly Mary McKay, Dr. Drewek, Dr. Troester, and Brandon Janson) for achieving this impressive milestone!
