The Tomah Health Lab Services Department has received accreditation by the College of American Pathologists (CAP).
According to Tomah Health Lab Services Director Lindsey Hardy, MBA, MLS, ASCP, the accreditation is the result of a recent two-day survey by CAP officials. “The accreditation is really the gold star standard for health care labs,” said Hardy. “Thanks to our staff, hospital patients and providers can be sure that they are in a facility that meets standards for excellent laboratory medicine services,” she added.
By law, healthcare labs must obtain accreditation every two years, which Hardy said is a major goal for her department.
“Accreditation is always a huge accomplishment, but one that really solidifies the work that we do every day at Tomah Health,” Hardy added. She said the hospital’s lab will undergo its next survey in January 2025.
