Sleep Disorders Center at Bluffton Regional Medical Center achieves accreditation

BLUFFTON, INDIANA (July 14, 2017) – Bluffton Regional Medical Center announced today its approval of accreditation status by the Accreditation Commission for Health Care for sleep center services and home sleep testing services.

“Providing high-quality care here in Wells County is what we strive for daily,” said Brent Parsons, chief executive officer, Bluffton Regional Medical Center. “We are very proud of our Sleep Disorders Center team for meeting the high standards of excellence as spelled out by this nationally-recognized accreditation organization. Treating a sleep disorder can change a patient’s life.”

Bluffton Regional Medical Center’s Sleep Disorders Center was one of the first to open in northeastern Indiana and has been providing this specialize service for over 30 years.

Sleep studies are scheduled any night of the week to accommodate patients. Most studies can be scheduled and performed within two weeks of a physician’s office request. Likewise, the interpreted results are sent promptly to the provider upon the completion of the study. Consultations are not required to schedule sleep studies. 

Sleep Disorders Center Coordinator Craig Cortright, MA, RRT-NPS, RPFT, RPSGT, has been managing the sleep lab at BRMC for more than 24 years and is an expert in the field. 

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.

ACHC is a not-for-profit organization that has stood as a symbol of quality and excellence since 1986.

Bluffton Regional Medical Center’s Sleep Disorders Center accepts all insurance including Medicare and Medicaid.
