(Victor Valley)– Victor Valley Global Medical Center’s (VVGMC) Laboratory recently completed an extensive licensing survey for College of American Pathologists (CAP) last week.
“This designation places our lab and respiratory services among an elite group of providers in patient care. We sought this accreditation because a CAP designation shows our community that we have met the highest standards in quality of care and service to our community” says Alex Feliciano, Director, Laboratory. “The survey involved pathology, blood gases, blood bank, chemistry, microbiology, and other point of care services and was achieved through a partnership with Respiratory Therapy and Laboratory departments working together to achieve excellence in patient care” states George Garcia, Director, Cardiopulmonary Services/Physical Therapy.
CAP is internationally recognized as the golden standard, and uses rigorous standards that regulate requirements to help laboratories achieve the highest standards of excellence.
