International Medical Lab recently was awarded accreditation by the College of American Pathologists, based on the results of a recent onsite inspection.
The locally-owned and operated laboratory was advised of this national recognition and congratulated for the excellence of the services being provided. International Medical Lab is the only independent, CAP-accredited clinical lab in the area and one of 7,000 CAP-accredited laboratories worldwide.
The CAP Laboratory Accreditation Program is recognized by the federal government as equal to or more stringent than its own and has long been considered the gold standard in laboratory accreditation. During the CAP accreditation process, inspectors examine the laboratory’s records and quality control, as well as staff qualifications, equipment, facilities, safety program and management. This stringent inspection program is designed to specifically ensure the highest standard of care for patients.
International Medical Lab is based in Sarasota. The laboratory has two patient service centers in Pinellas, including one in Pinellas Park and one in St. Petersburg.
