SMHC's full-service laboratory is accredited by the College of American Pathologists (CAP). The CAP Laboratory Accreditation Program is an internationally-recognized program and the only one of its kind that utilizes teams of practicing laboratory professionals as inspectors. Designed to go well beyond regulatory compliance, the program helps laboratories achieve the highest standards of excellence to positively impact patient care.
In addition, the SMHC Laboratory's Blood Bank is accredited by the American Association of Blood Banks (AABB). Accreditation assures the public that SMHC Lab’s Blood Bank meets or exceeds national benchmarks for quality and safety. Accreditation follows an intensive on-site assessment by specially trained AABB assessors and establishes that the level of medical, technical and administrative performance within the facility meets or exceeds the standards set by the AABB. By successfully meeting those requirements every two years, SMHC remains in good standing with approximately 2,000 similar facilities across the United States and abroad that have earned AABB Accreditation.
Locations and Hours
All lab services are now by appointment only (no walk-ins allowed). This is to help manage the number of patients in waiting rooms at any one time for patient and staff safety.
