The Northshore Medical Laboratory, a division of Northshore Medical and Aesthetics Centre, has again been accredited by the American healthcare accreditation organisation COLA.

Dwayne Simpson, senior medical laboratory technologist, said: “Northshore Medical Laboratory has met all the criteria for Laboratory Accreditation by COLA Inc, a leading national laboratory accreditor, whose programme and standards enable clinical laboratories and staff to meet the United States Clinical Laboratory Improvement Act and other regulatory requirements.”

Dr Kyjuan H. Brown, medical director, said: “The COLA accreditation speaks to our continued 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 fourth time this accreditation has been awarded to us; and we are especially pleased this time because we passed the rigorous review process with high distinction.”
