USA Medical Center Lab Receives CAP Accreditation
The laboratory at University of South Alabama Medical Center has been awarded accreditation with distinction by the Commission on Laboratory Accreditation of the College of American Pathologists (CAP).

The national award, based on a recent on-site inspection, cited the lab for excellent services.

"This recognition assures our patients they are receiving high quality and cost effective medical care from our laboratory," said Cheri McRoyan, chief medical technologist. "We are pleased and proud to be awarded CAP accreditation."

The CAP Laboratory Accreditation Program is recognized by the federal government as being equal to, or more stringent than, the government's own inspection program. The accreditation process involves a review of the lab's records and quality control procedures, staff qualifications, lab equipment, facilities, safety program and record and overall management.
