Sevier Valley Hospital in Richfield has received accreditation from the American Academy of Sleep Medicine for the hospital’s sleep studies program. 

This program helps diagnose a variety of sleep disorders for local patients including narcolepsy, circadian rhythm disorder, restless legs syndrome, sleep deprivation, as well as the most common sleep disorder — sleep apnea.

“The American Academy of Sleep Medicine congratulates Sevier Valley Hospital on meeting the high standards required to earn accreditation as a sleep disorder center,” said Dr. Douglas Kirsch, AASM president. “Sevier Valley Hospital’s sleep studies program is an important resource to the local community and will provide academic and scientific value in addition to the highest quality care for patients suffering from sleep disorders.”
