KDMC laboratory receives accreditation from College of American Pathologists 

King’s Daughters Medical Center’s Main Laboratory has been recognized by the accreditation committee of the College of American Pathologists (CAP), based on the results of a recent on-site inspection.

During the CAP accreditation process, inspectors examine the laboratory’s records and quality control of procedures for the preceding two years. CAP inspectors also examine laboratory staff qualifications, as well as the laboratory’s equipment, facilities, safety program and record, in addition to the overall management of the laboratory. This stringent inspection program is designed to specifically ensure the highest standard of care for all laboratory patients.

“To receive accreditation from the CAP is a tremendous honor,” said Shawn Boggs, KDMC Lab director. “It is confirmation for our very skilled and knowledgeable lab team as well as the state-of-the-art equipment they use. More importantly, it is proof that our patients are receiving a level of care that is second to none.”    

The College of American Pathologists is a medical society that serves more than 17,000 physician members and the laboratory community throughout the world. It is the world’s largest association composed exclusively of board-certified pathologists and is widely considered the leader in laboratory quality assurance.
