Northshore Medical earns lab accreditation

Northshore Medical and Aesthetic Centre, an award-winning healthcare provider, has announced it has again met all necessary criteria for laboratory accreditation by Cola, an American healthcare accreditation organisation.

The company said such accreditation is given only to laboratories that apply rigid standards of quality in day-to-day operations, demonstrate continued accuracy in the performance of proficiency testing and pass a rigorous on-site laboratory survey. NMAC has earned the Cola accreditation as a result of its dedication and commitment to providing quality service to its patients, it said.

Kyjuan Brown, medical director at NMAC, said: “The Cola accreditation speaks to our commitment to excellence. Clinical laboratories that are given this special seal of approval are not only dedicated to providing patients with accurate medical results, they are also committed to improving safety and the overall experience for customers.

“This is the third time this accreditation has been awarded to us; and we are especially pleased this time because we passed the rigorous review process with distinction.”

Dr Brown added: “My team and I are extremely proud to be recognised as one of the worthy institutions to receive this honour and will continue to make strides to provide patients with the best possible medical care.”

NMAC provides holistic healthcare services, as well as family medical/primary care; aesthetic services, dermatology and TCD physicals. Its founder, Dr Brown, was recently named Bermuda's best healthcare professional in the Best of Bermuda Awards 2019.

Cola is a non-profit, physician-directed organisation that promotes quality and excellence in medicine and patient care through programmes of voluntary education, achievement and accreditation.

The organisation is sponsored by the American Academy of Family Physicians, the American Medical Association, the American Society of Internal Medicine and the American College of Physicians.
