Mid Coast Hospital’s Clinical Laboratory is
Nationally Recognized and Certified for Excellence

February 24, 2012

BRUNSWICK, Maine – The clinical laboratory at Mid Coast Hospital has been recognized nationally and recertified for excellence in services by the College of American Pathologists (CAP). The notification of certification followed an on-site inspection of Mid Coast’s facilities and equipment.

“The CAP review examines all of the records, processes, and quality control procedures of the laboratory during the proceeding two years and evaluates the competency and education of the staff and its overall management,” explained Sue Ross, MT (HEW), Laboratory Director.

“The high level of knowledge, skill, and commitment of all the laboratory professionals here at Mid Coast is the reason we are able to meet the stringent standards of the College,” she said. “The mission of every member of the lab staff is to deliver high quality results in a timely manner.”

The CAP Laboratory Accreditation Program began in the early 1960s to specifically ensure the highest standard of care for all laboratory patients.

The federal government recognizes the process as equal to or more stringent than the government’s own inspection program.
