CentraCare Health System’s Laboratory Services recently received reaccreditation by the College of American Pathologists (CAP). The accreditation covers both St. Cloud Hospital and the CentraCare Health Plaza location.
The College of American Pathologists is acknowledged by the federal government as being equal or more stringent than the government’s inspection program. CentraCare Laboratory Services is proud to be recognized for the ‘excellence of the services being provided.
In the course of an on-site inspection, 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 previous two years. CAP inspectors also scrutinize the education and qualifications of the staff, the adequacy of the facilities, the equipment, laboratory safety and laboratory management to determine how well the laboratory is serving the patient. CAP is an advocate for high-quality, cost-effective care.
CentraCare Laboratory Services joins more than 7,000 facilities across the United States that have earned CAP accreditation.
