CGH Dept of Pathology Receives Accreditation

Tuesday, September 28th, 2010

CANONSBURG HOSPITAL’S
DEPARTMENT OF PATHOLOGY RECEIVES ACCREDITATION FROM
COLLEGE OF AMERICAN PATHOLOGISTS

Canonsburg Hospital’s Department of Pathology has been awarded an accreditation by the Commission on Laboratory Accreditation of the College of American Pathologists (CAP), based on the results of a recent on-site inspection.

The laboratory’s director, Tasneem A. Syed, M.D. was advised of this national recognition and congratulated for the excellence of the services being provided. Canonsburg Hospital Department of Pathology is one of the more than 7,000 CAP-accredited laboratories nationwide.

The CAP Laboratory Accreditation Program, begun in the early 1960s, is recognized by the federal government as being equal to or more stringent than the government’s own inspection program.

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

The College of American Pathologists is a medical society serving nearly 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. The College is an advocate for high-quality and cost-effective patient care.
