The Accreditation Committee of the College of American Pathologists (CAP) has awarded accreditation to OSF HealthCare Saint Anthony Medical Center Laboratory in Rockford, IL, based on results of a recent on-site inspection as part of the CAP’s Accreditation Programs. This year’s honor adds to our tenure as one of the longest and continuous CAP accredited laboratories in the nation to be accredited for more than 50 years.

OSF Saint Anthony Medical Center Lab is one of more than 8,000 CAP-accredited facilities worldwide.

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 of procedures. CAP inspectors examine the laboratory staff qualifications, equipment, facilities, safety program and record, and overall management. These reviews help verify activities reflect the most recent best practices.
