St. Luke’s Laboratory Receives Accreditation from the College of American Pathologists
St. Luke's laboratory has been awarded accreditation from the Accreditation Committee of the College of American Pathologists (CAP) based on results of a recent on-site inspection as part of the CAP's Accreditation Programs. St. Luke's laboratory is one of more than 7,600 CAP-accredited facilities worldwide and has been accredited since 1993.
During the CAP accreditation process, designed to ensure the highest standard of care for all laboratory patients, inspectors examine the laboratory's records and quality control of procedures for the preceding two years. CAP inspectors also examine laboratory staff qualifications, equipment, facilities, safety program and record, and overall management. "This award demonstrates the commitment to safety, compliance and efficiency that St. Luke's laboratory has to patients," said St. Luke's Laboratory Medical Director Steven J. Eastep, MD.
St. Luke's laboratory is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
