The Accreditation Committee of the College of American Pathologists (CAP) has awarded accreditation to Guthrie Medical Group Laboratory in Sayre, based on results of a recent on-site inspection as part of the CAP’s Accreditation Programs.
The facility’s director, Hani Hojjati, MD, was advised of this national recognition and congratulated for the excellent services being provided. Guthrie Medical Group Laboratory is one of more than 8,000 CAP-accredited facilities worldwide.
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. Congratulations to the pathology and laboratory medicine team for this significant accomplishment that further demonstrates our commitment to high-quality patient care at Guthrie.
