The Sleep Lab at Memorial Hospital of Chester has achieved accreditation through Accreditation Commission for Health Care.

Accreditation is a process through which health care 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. The nonprofit ACHC has stood as a symbol of quality and excellence since 1986.

Memorial Hospital has been providing Sleep Diagnostic testing since 1998. Memorial provides services for sleep diagnostic testing and treatment of all sleep disorders, home sleep studies, education on the many sleep disorders and support services for patients with CPAP systems.

Sleep is more than a "time out" from your busy routine. Sleep is an important contributor to good health, mental and emotional wellness and safety. When you sleep well, you wake up feeling refreshed, alert and ready for your day.

But when sleep is poor, it can have a big impact -- not just on your daily routine, but on your overall health.
