Clinical Laboratories at UI Hospitals and Clinics Reaccredited

The director of the Emory Warner Clinical Laboratories at University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics in Iowa City February 24 today that the laboratories have earned reaccreditation from the Accreditation Committee of the College of American Pathologists (CAP).

Matthew Krasowski, MD, PhD, director of Clinical Laboratories, called the news a tremendous achievement. Begun in the early 1960's, the CAP Laboratory Accreditation Program is known for having standards that match or exceed the federal government's inspection program.

The CAP review team examined the institution's lab records, quality control measures, staff qualifications, equipment, facilities, safety protocols, and management process. The rigorous review helps ensure patients are receiving high quality care.
