CVPath Institute Inc. Laboratory
Receives Re-Accreditation from College of American Pathologists
October 18, 2019: The Accreditation Committee of the College of American Pathologists (CAP) has awarded re-accreditation to CVPath Institute, Inc, of Gaithersburg, Maryland based on results of a recent-on-site inspection as part of the CAP’s Accreditation Programs.
The facility’s Medical Director, Aloke Finn, MD and CAP Director, Maria E. Romero, MD were advised of this national recognition and congratulated for the excellence of the services being provided. CVPath’s laboratory is one of more than 8,000 CAP-accredited facilities worldwide.
Dr. Romero commended the CVPath team “for their diligence and hard work in achieving this honor as a testament to CVPath’s commitment to excellence.”
“The CVPath Institute laboratory has been CAP-accredited since it’s establishment in 2005. Therefore, we are extremely gratified to be able to maintain this high standard of excellence and are honored to receive this recognition,” said Dr. Finn.
The U.S. federal government recognizes the CAP Laboratory Accreditation Program, begun in the early 1960s, as being equal-to or more-stringent than the government’s inspection program.
During the CAP accreditation process, designed to ensure the highest standard of care for all laboratory patients, inspectors examine the laboratory’s records and quality control procedures for the preceding two years. CAP inspectors also examine laboratory staff qualifications, equipment, facilities, safety program and record, and overall management.
