Capital Digestive Care’s Pathology Laboratory has received its renewed accreditation from the College of American Pathologists (CAP). This recent achievement was based on results of a recent bi-annual on-site inspection as part of the CAP’s Accreditation Programs.
The internationally recognized CAP program is based on rigorous accreditation standards and is the only one of its kind utilizing teams of practicing laboratory professionals as inspectors. For the Pathology Laboratory, this accreditation comes in addition to the facility’s Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA) certification from the federal government.
Under the leadership of Medical Director Dr. Jeffrey Baybick, the Capital Digestive Care Pathology Laboratory is staffed by highly pathologists specializing exclusively in biopsy interpretation of the gastrointestinal tract and liver. The laboratory is now nationally accredited by CAP until the next inspection in 2018.
