Lab Passes Accreditation Inspection
July 28, 2022
SHAC has a sophisticated in-house laboratory that requires ongoing accreditation to remain in operation. This process involves a semi-annual site visit in which an inspector from COLA, the accrediting agency, conducts a rigorous review to verify that the SHAC Lab meets the quality and safety standards to renew its operating license. SHAC’s COLA site visit took place on July 20, 2022. The SHAC laboratory fully passed the inspection.
The COLA inspector also acknowledged the added challenges that Shareef Jawadi, SHAC Laboratory Supervisor, faced during the past two years due to the COVID pandemic, and was very complimentary in how well lab quality and work flow processes were maintained throughout this challenging time.
Congratulations to the SHAC Lab staff for their ongoing attention to maintaining a safe and effective lab operation for our patients and medical providers!
