Metro Health Hospital Cancer Center Laboratory Receives Accreditation

The Metro Health Cancer Center Laboratory at Metro Health Village has been granted accreditation by the College of American Pathologists, or CAP.

The accreditation review process is designed to ensure the highest standard of care for all laboratory patients. The process includes an on-site inspection and examination of the laboratory’s records and quality control procedures for the preceding two years. In addition, accreditors review laboratory staff qualifications, equipment, facilities, safety programs and records, and overall management.

“We are very pleased our Cancer Center Laboratory has been accredited by the College of American Pathologists,” said Dr. Sarat C. Khandavalli, director of the Metro Health Hospital Laboratory.  “Our staff is proud of the top-notch work we do and that our Cancer Center Laboratory facilities have been recognized.”

The College of American Pathologists is celebrating more than 50 years as the “gold standard” in laboratory accreditation. CAP is the world’s largest association composed exclusively of board-certified pathologists. The federal government recognizes CAP accreditation standards as equal to or more stringent than required governmental inspections.  More than 7,600 hospitals have received CAP-accreditation worldwide.

The Metro Health Hospital Main Laboratory was most recently reaccredited by CAP in July of 2013.
