BRMC lab awarded CAP accreditation

Baxter Regional Medical Center's Clinical Laboratory Services was recently recognized for its high standards of excellence in clinical laboratory practices. BRMC was awarded accreditation from the College of American Pathologists (CAP), and it joins an elite group of globally-recognized facilities whose lab operates at a high level of quality.

CAP has been considered the gold standard in lab accreditation for 50 years. It serves over 18,000 physician members and the global laboratory community.

Accreditation requires inspection by a team of lab professionals examining all aspects of the department including patient care practices, quality assistance, staff qualifications, technologies and equipment, facilities and leadership. The professionals examine how the lab meets the needs of its patients, providers, hospital and community.
