North Coun­try Hos­pi­tal Lab Re­ceives Reac­cred­i­ta­tion

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS - New­port, VT

The Ac­cred­i­ta­tion Com­mit­tee of the Col­lege of Amer­i­can Pathol­o­gists (CAP) has awarded reac­cred­i­ta­tion to the North Coun­try Hos­pi­tal Lab­o­ra­tory based on the re­sults of a re­cent on-site in­spec­tion.

A team of seven sur­vey­ors made an unan­nounced visit to the North Coun­try Hos­pi­tal Lab­o­ra­tory in Oc­to­ber, re­view­ing more than 2,000 el­e­ments, to view lab qual­ity and clin­i­cal ef­fec­tive­ness. Lab Man­ager, Oren Martin, hap­pily read the CAP award let­ter re­ceived Jan­uary 27th. “We are now re-ac­cred­ited for two years,” Oren an­nounced, prais­ing all who made this pos­si­ble. “The lab­o­ra­tory staff works 24/7 to ob­tain the high­est level of qual­ity and ef­fi­ciency for our pa­tients and clients.”

Upon learn­ing of the lab­o­ra­tory reac­cred­i­ta­tion, North Coun­try Hos­pi­tal Pres­i­dent and CEO Clau­dio Fort said, “The North Coun­try Hos­pi­tal lab is a fun­da­men­tal re­quire­ment for our clin­i­cians to be able to ac­cu­rately di­ag­nose and treat pa­tients. Ac­cred­i­ta­tion by the Col­lege of Amer­i­can Pathol­o­gists is the gold stan­dard seal of ap­proval to as­sure our physicians and pa­tients that our lab­o­ra­tory meets or ex­ceeds rig­or­ous qual­ity stan­dards.”

As the lead­ing or­ga­ni­za­tion with more than 18,000 board-cer­ti­fied pathol­o­gists, the Col­lege of Amer­i­can Pathol­o­gists serves pa­tients, pathol­o­gists, and the pub­lic by fos­ter­ing and ad­vo­cat­ing ex­cel­lence in the prac­tice of pathol­ogy and lab­o­ra­tory medicine world­wide.
