The College of American Pathologists (CAP) released a list of its longest accredited laboratories in the United States. These 41 laboratories have continuously met the highest standards of laboratory quality and proficiency testing since the CAP began its Laboratory Accreditation Program in 1964, ensuring that patients are receiving the best medical care and most accurate diagnosis and treatment possible.
CAMC's lab was the only one listed in West Virginia.
CAMC and the other 40 laboratories have continued to meet the CAP's rigorous standards and requirements for more than 50 years. These standards and requirements help laboratories stay in compliance with Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) regulations for quality testing. CMS regulates all laboratory testing (except research) performed on humans in the U.S. through the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA).
