HHRMC Lab Earns Accreditation 
 
Monday, 26 February 2007 
 
 
Hilton Head Regional Medical Center’s Main Laboratory 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, Charles Lucas, MD was advised of this national recognition and congratulated for the “excellence of the services provided.” Hilton Head Regional Medical Center Laboratory is one of more than 6,000 CAP-accredited laboratories nationwide.

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 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 16,000 physician members and the laboratory community throughout the world. It is the world’s largest association composed exclusively of pathologists and is widely considered the leader in laboratory assurance. The CAP is an advocate for high-quality and cost-effective medical care.
