North Richland Hills – The Accreditation Committee of the College of American Pathologists (CAP) has awarded accreditation to Medical City North Hills based on the results of a recent on-site inspection as part of the CAP’s Accreditation Programs. Recognized for rigorous and robust standards, CAP accreditation elevates quality and mitigates risk, an important way that laboratories can contribute to improved patient outcomes.

Medical City North Hills was advised of this global recognition and congratulated for the excellence of the services being provided. The Medical City North Hills laboratory is one of more than 8,000 CAP-accredited facilities worldwide.

“It’s an honor for our laboratory to be recognized for their commitment to the care and improvement of human life,” Medical City North Hills CEO Mark Deno says. “This accreditation further supports that our patients and loved ones are receiving the high-quality, safe care they deserve.”

During the CAP accreditation process, designed to ensure a high standard of care for all laboratory patients, inspectors examine the laboratory’s records and quality control procedures. CAP inspectors also examine laboratory staff qualifications, equipment, facilities, safety programs, records and overall management. These reviews help verify activities and reflect best practices.

With over 23,000 laboratory participants, in addition to accreditation, the CAP offers proficiency testing/external quality assessment (PT/EQA) programs, quality improvement tools, and protocols and guidelines to ensure excellence in all areas across the laboratory. Built on a foundation of pathologist expertise, the College of American Pathologists (CAP) partners with laboratories worldwide to elevate the quality of laboratory medicine with best-in-class solutions designed to drive operational excellence, achieve diagnostic confidence, and ensure the best patient care.
