CENTRAL CAROLINA HOSPITAL RECEIVES ACCREDITATION FROM COLLEGE OF AMERICAN PATHOLOGISTS

The Accreditation Committee of the College of American Pathologists (CAP) has awarded accreditation to Central Carolina Hospital Laboratory, Sanford, NC based on results of a recent on-site inspection as part of the CAP’s Accreditation Programs.

The facility’s director, Ming Yin, MD, PhD, was advised of this national recognition and congratulated for the excellence of the services being provided. Central Carolina Hospital Laboratory is one of more than 7,600 CAP-accredited facilities worldwide.

“In achieving this CAP accreditation, Central Carolina Hospital has demonstrated its commitment to the highest level of care in our laboratory,” says David Loving, CEO of Central Carolina Hospital.

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.

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.
