Sharon Regional Health System’s main laboratory and Cancer Care Center lab accredited


Sharon Regional Health System’s main laboratory and Cancer Care Center lab recently were accredited by the College of American Pathologists after an on-site inspection. The college’s Laboratory Accreditation Program, which started in the early 1960s, is recognized by the federal government as being equal to or more stringent than the government’s own inspection program.

Inspectors examine the records and quality control of the laboratory for the preceding two years, as well as the education and qualifications of the total staff, the adequacy of the facilities, the equipment, lab safety, and lab management to determine how well the lab is serving the patient.

The college is a medical society serving nearly 16,000 physician members and the laboratory community throughout the world.
