Boone Memorial Hospital Laboratory Receives Accreditation from College of American Pathologists

December 20, 2018

The Accreditation Committee of the College of American Pathologists (CAP) has awarded accreditation to the Boone Memorial Hospital Laboratory Department in Madison, West

Virginia. The award was based on results of a recent on-site inspection as part of the CAP's Accreditation Programs. Boone Memorial Hospital Laboratory is one of more than 8,000 CAP-accredited facilities worldwide.

 

"We are thrilled to be part of this national recognition," said Debbie Randant, Boone Memorial Hospital Laboratory Director. "I am proud of our staff for continually striving for excellence."

 

The. U.S. federal government recognizes the CAP Laboratory Accreditation Program, which began in the 1960's, 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. 

 

"Our Laboratory Department is stellar," said Virgil Underwood, Chief Executive Officer of Boone Memorial Hospital. "They provide quality care to each and every patient."
