Trinity Health’s Pathology/Laboratory Service is accredited by the College of American Pathologists. Founded in 1946, CAP is the largest association of board-certified pathologists in the world and the leading provider of laboratory accreditation and proficiency testing programs, and is widely considered the gold standard in laboratory quality assurance. Approval is based on results of an on-site inspection every two years, which examines quality control procedures, staff qualifications, laboratory equipment, facilities, safety program and record, and the overall management of the laboratory. The stringent inspection program is designed to specifically ensure the highest standard for care for the laboratory patient.
The main Laboratory at Trinity Hospital performs around 1 million tests annually. As a CAP-accredited laboratory, Trinity joins a group of 8000 laboratories worldwide that have met CAP’s high standards of excellence. (1/21/19)
