StoneSprings Hospital Center’s on-site laboratory has received accreditation from the College of American Pathologists, meeting the highest standard of excellence in laboratory practices.
“This achievement is an important recognition of our laboratory and reaffirms our commitment to providing the highest quality laboratory services and reliable testing results to our patients,” StoneSprings COO Ben Brown stated.
Begun in the early 1960s, the CAP Laboratory Accreditation Program utilizes teams of highly specialized laboratory professionals as inspectors. During the accreditation process, inspectors examine the laboratory’s records and quality control procedures. They also assess the laboratory’s staff qualifications, equipment, facilities, safety program, and overall management to ensure it meets CAP’s diverse and stringent requirements. The goal of the CAP program is to improve patient safety by advancing the quality of pathology and laboratory services through education and strict standards.
