Pathology lab recertified by College of American Pathologists

The Florida Digestive Health Specialists Department of Pathology recently passed its College of American Pathologists (CAP) inspection, one of the most stringent in the nation. With laboratory medicine continually evolving, CAP provides accreditation and proficiency testing to labs, ensuring the highest standards of quality.

Our lab is one of more than 20,000 around the world that opts into the CAP testing to ensure continuous improvements and the highest standards of care for patients. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) granted the CAP Laboratory Accreditation Program authority that allows a CAP inspection in lieu of a CMS inspection. Additionally, the program retains deemed status with the Joint Commission, United Network for Organ Sharing, the National Marrow Donor Program, the Foundation for the Accreditation of Cellular Therapies and many US state agencies. 

By managing our own laboratory with the best staff, we are able to focus on what matters most – accurate, reliable test results.
