St. Luke’s Laboratory Earns Recognition from National Organization
St. Luke’s Laboratory has earned accreditation from the Accreditation Committee of the College of American Pathologists (CAP).
This recognition is a reflection of the excellent laboratory services offered at St Luke’s.
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 procedures for the preceding two years. CAP inspectors also examine laboratory staff qualifications, equipment, facilities, safety program and record, and overall management.
The U.S. federal government recognizes the CAP Laboratory Accreditation Program, begun in the early 1960s, as being equal to or more stringent than the government’s own inspection program.
St. Luke’s Laboratory is one of more than 8,000 CAP-accredited facilities worldwide.
