CCH Sleep Center Reaccredited by American Academy of Sleep Medicine, Ensuring Top-Quality Care for Sleep Health

GILLETTE, Wyo. - June 21, 2024 - The Campbell County Health (CCH) Sleep Center is proud to announce its reaccreditation by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM), which recognizes sleep centers across the country providing the highest standard of care in sleep health. This accreditation, first obtained in 2014, reflects the dedication and expertise of CCH’s Sleep Center team and their pursuit of Excellence Every Day.

Dessie Hoxie, RT and Sleep Center Services Manager, highlighted the importance of this achievement: "AASM accreditation is the gold standard of excellence to ensure we are providing the best care from a sleep health perspective." The reaccreditation process, which spanned an intensive four months, requires strict compliance with best practice policies and procedures, quality care outcomes, and the involvement of a physician board-certified in sleep medicine, among other stringent criteria.

The CCH Sleep Center, under the physician leadership of Medical Director Dr. Michael Nolledo, addresses a comprehensive range of sleep disorders, including obstructive sleep apnea, insomnia, restless legs syndrome, and parasomnias such as sleepwalking and sleep eating. "We see a lot of insomnia patients, especially with all the shift workers in the community," noted Hoxie.

Sleep disorders significantly affect daily life and overall well-being. If left untreated, these conditions can escalate to serious health problems such as hypertension, obesity, and diabetes. "During the night, your body is supposed to be resting, and even a couple of seconds' pause in breathing is very harmful," Hoxie explained. "Sleep health is fundamental to our well-being."

Patients aged 13 and older can benefit from the comprehensive diagnostic and treatment services offered at the CCH Sleep Center. To undergo a sleep study, patients must obtain a referral for symptoms such as excessive daytime sleepiness, snoring, or observed pauses in breathing during sleep. The center's skilled team meticulously monitors brain and heart activity throughout the night, with technicians scoring activity every 30 seconds over a minimum of six hours to ensure precise and thorough results.

The dedication and hard work of the entire CCH Sleep Center team was instrumental in achieving reaccreditation. Hoxie highlighted the efforts of Alexis Beug, Sleep Tech Coordinator, and Arianne Roberts, Office Coordinator, for their significant contributions. Their commitment ensures that patients receive the highest quality of care and support throughout their treatment journey.

Hoxie shared a memorable success story from the center: "Some time ago, we had a patient who would fall asleep literally standing up. He came in for a sleep study, and it was life-altering for him. You don’t realize how poor your sleep is until you start getting good sleep." This patient’s story underscores the life-changing impact of proper diagnosis and treatment of sleep disorders.

The CCH Sleep Center is currently accepting new patients. If you believe you are experiencing sleep-related issues, it is crucial to seek help. Contact your primary care provider to obtain a referral to CCH’s Sleep Center. Prioritizing your sleep health can lead to transformative improvements in your quality of life.
