Angel Medical Center Laboratory has been awarded accreditation by the Accreditation Committee of the College of American Pathologists (CAP), based on the results from an on-site inspection.
The laboratory’s director, Michael E. Rohlfing, M.D. and the Lab Director, Tim Gordon, were advised of the national recognition and congratulated for the excellence of the services being provided. The accreditation is nationally recognized by the federal government and is more often more stringent than the government’s own inspection program.
During the CAP accreditation process, inspectors examine the lab’s records and quality control procedures for the preceding two years. CAP inspectors also examine the entire staff’s qualifications, the laboratory’s equipment, facilities, safety program and record, as well as the overall management of the laboratory. This stringent inspection program is designed to specifically ensure the highest standard of care for the laboratory’s patients.
The College of American Pathologists (CAP), celebrating 50 years as the gold standard in laboratory accreditation, is a medical society serving nearly 18,000 physician members and the laboratory community throughout the world. It is the world’s largest association composed exclusively of pathologists and is widely considered the leader in laboratory quality assurance. Angel Medical Center is proud for the work and dedication of our lab staff and leadership.
