July 15, 2013

DuPage Med­ical Group’s his­tol­ogy lab­o­ra­to­ry in The Der­ma­tol­ogy Insti­tute at City­Gate Cen­ter in Naperville has received accred­i­ta­tion from the Col­lege of Amer­i­can Pathol­o­gists (CAP).

The CAP is a lead­ing orga­ni­za­tion in lab­o­ra­to­ry qual­i­ty assur­ance and accred­i­ta­tion is award­ed only to facil­i­ties that adhere to the high­est lev­els of qual­i­ty in lab­o­ra­to­ry prac­tices and com­mit­ment to patient care.

We are extreme­ly proud of our lab­o­ra­to­ry and admin­is­tra­tive teams for attain­ing the Col­lege of Amer­i­can Pathol­o­gists cer­ti­fi­ca­tion for the new DuPage Med­ical Group his­tol­ogy lab­o­ra­to­ry in Naperville at City­Gate Cen­ter,” says the facility’s co-direc­tors Dr. Ashish Bha­tia and Dr. Jef­frey Hsu. It is a rig­or­ous process award­ed to only lab­o­ra­to­ries with the high­est standards.” 

The his­tol­ogy lab­o­ra­to­ry is the first DMG lab­o­ra­to­ry to become CAP accred­it­ed and it is one of more than 7,000 accred­it­ed facil­i­ties world­wide. Dur­ing the CAP accred­i­ta­tion process, lab­o­ra­to­ries under­go thor­ough exam­i­na­tions of records and qual­i­ty con­trol pro­ce­dures. CAP inspec­tors also exam­ine the staff’s qual­i­fi­ca­tions, the laboratory’s equip­ment and facil­i­ties, as well as the over­all management.

At DMG, we strive to achieve excel­lence in all aspects of care pro­vid­ed to our patients, and lab­o­ra­to­ry ser­vices are no excep­tion,” Dr. Bha­tia said. In fact, it is a key and crit­i­cal part of health care deliv­ery, and we will work to exceed the stan­dards to pro­vide the best care and ser­vices to our patients.”
