Sacred Heart’s laboratory earns renewed accreditations


The laboratory at HSHS Sacred Heart Hospital has recently earned accreditation renewals from the College of American Pathologists and the American Association of Blood Banks. The voluntary inspections and subsequent accreditations follow an intensive onsite assessment of policies, procedures and practices of all aspects of laboratory testing and anatomic pathology, as well as an onsite assessment of lab equipment, staff qualifications, safety programs and overall management.

“These inspections and the accreditations earned ensure that we have the equipment, training and expertise necessary to provide the very best in diagnostic care,” said Dawn Larson, director of laboratory services at HSHS Sacred Heart and St. Joseph’s hospitals.

“Our staff does an outstanding job of meeting and exceeding expectations in the effort to best serve our patients,” added Larson.
