The Accreditation Committee of the College of American Pathologists (CAP) re-accredited Reproductive Care Center’s laboratory, based on results of a recent on-site inspection conducted by CAP inspectors. The inspection team included practicing pathology and laboratory medicine professionals.
The CAP advised RCC’s Laboratory Director, Benjamin Sessions, PhD, HCLD, ELD, TS, CC of this national recognition and congratulated RCC for its excellence in the services being provided. RCC’s laboratory is one of more than 8,000 CAP-accredited facilities worldwide.
Dr James Heiner, founder of RCC said “We have maintained CAP accreditation since 2001. We are grateful to have highly skilled laboratory staff, led by Dr Sessions, who have collaboratively worked together to uphold the highest quality of laboratory standards, allowing RCC to provide the best possible results to our patients.”
The U.S. federal government recognizes the CAP Laboratory Accreditation Program, begun in the early 1960s, as being equal-to or more-stringent-than the government’s own inspection program. 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 for the preceding two years. CAP inspectors also examine laboratory staff qualifications, equipment, facilities, safety program and record, and overall management.
Congratulations to the andrology and embryology teams for this significant accomplishment that further demonstrates RCC’s commitment to high-quality patient care.
