Piedmont Walton Sleep Center Receives Program Accreditation

Monroe, Ga. (August 4, 2022) — The Piedmont Walton Hospital Sleep Center, which serves a growing need in the community, recently received accreditation from the Accreditation Commission for Health Care (ACHC).

“We have seen a significant increase in the need for sleep medicine services closer to home,” said Rose Dennis, executive director of patient services at Piedmont Walton. “This recognition by the ACHC is confirmation of the high-quality, comprehensive work we are doing to provide solutions for our sleep disorder patients.”

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

Offering comprehensive diagnosis, treatment, assessment and follow-up services for patients ages 16 and older, the Piedmont Walton Sleep Center’s board-certified sleep medicine specialist, Rami Arfoosh, M.D., and team of dedicated technologists work to improve patients’ sleeping habits. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), sleep insufficiency is linked to many chronic diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, obesity and depression.
